I bought these to finish off my turbo'ed 1.6 mk1 as I recognised that even with the EBC turbodisc Mk 2 brakes, there was still the potential for improvement. After fitting the calipers, which include s/s lines, I found that the calipers, with the suppied pads, were absolutely superb at the task of progressive braking with massive stopping power. The pads supplied are race pads, so warming them up is essential, but at fast road speeds and the race track, this combination works really well. A disadvantage of the pads are warm up times for road use, and considerable dusting after hard braking, so this might not be the first choice for all customers, but apparently other choices of pads are available. For fast road and track use, however, they are superb. A very welcome modification to my MX5! 5 stars!
