Question EL brake upgrade in NZ

i want to upgrade the brakes on my 1998 EL XR8. don't have many options in NZ with aftermarket bakes except BDA unless you use expensive race brakes. Cebco Brakes have a very good web site, and offer a very price competitive package, are there brakes as good as they sound? how will they compare to a BDA cross drilled rotor and pad option?

i've been looking at this for my ef fairmont as well. cebco seem to be the only people around offering a twin piston pbr caliper. problem is you have to upgrade to a 330mm rotor. i've had dba cross drilled and slotted rotors on now for about 12 months and still have about half the pad still there. i didn't notice a huge increase in braking performance so i'll probably be getting cebco's package. i think the dba cross drilled and slotted rotors are an option in their package, along with the braided hoses.

I wouldn't say 330mm was a problem. Being an E.L you maybe right with your suspension, on earlier models they need changing fortunately it all come's in the kit.. If you are giving it some real treatment, go for the floating rotor. The second/ stage two option..imo.. Price wise they are good value to me...
