Well i finally installed my set of new rotors and pads all around. Below are some pics. Didnt take too much...sorry.

After installing and breaking them in, i find this set up very good. IT doesnt feel spongey or anything at all. Stopping power definetely increased a large amount. I would recommend this set up to anybody who is going to change rotors or pads.

My set up:

-EBC front + rear slotted/drilled sport rotors
- HAWK HPS performance pads

Sammifan, does the gold finish hold up to lots of use? I was thinking of black rotors with gold powdercoated calipers... Bronze rims some time.

I went with the HPS pads because i heard a lot of mixed reviews on the greenstuff pads. That they squeak a lot and stuff. but either way, its still a good combo. and EBC definitely makes a good set of rotors.

I guess they're holding up pretty good, can't really tell since I have steelies installed for winter. Had them on for around 4 months before winter came and the gold colour only faded a bit.

Nice setup. I'm interested in seeing them with the tires on as well.

As for the ebc greenstuff pads, they look horrendous. Nothing against the quality of them, I just don't like the green color. Clashes bad!

I was wondering, are there any special sockets or tools that I need to take off the calipers.
I just got the EBC Rotors and pads.
