coolo . . . last time I checked they weren't available for the EL's either . . . (had actually assumed we were going to get screwed by having an older car)
Something to look forward to next rotor change
Damn, I just have to say, they have one of the better sites that I've seen for a while . . lots of interesting information is gooood !
For the next edit, its interesting in that it only reckons it covers till 11/96 ?!?

Thank you for this e-mail,
The DBA 4000 series rotors can be used for street or track as long as they
don't exceed 630 C,
These rotors have temperature monitoring which will allow you to gauge the
Depending on the type of pads you fit you can expect extended life from
these rotors ,
The formula Ferodo TS2000
pads are a proven performance & street pad ,
TS2000 has been formulated to minimise disc wear without losing the friction
I hope this will help you ,
Will Get a price on them in the next week
Anyone reccomend any other pads and would you go for advance/ultimates in bendix
Has anyone fitted the 4000 series to their AU yet??? My bendix Ultimates pads are running low after only 10months of being on.So instead of machining the stock discs i want to put some slotted rotors on.
I am running slotted DBA's and the Formula TS2000 series pads. I can tell you they work well, are meant to be kind to rotors (unlike the ultimates) and I don't have a dust problem unless it rains and then they look dirty. That is good. They do squeal though, like steel on steel at low pressure. Have 6000k's on them now and will wait till about 11 or 12 as they may stop at that time, but if it looks like they'll keep doing it for their whole lifetime, they will be coming off and I'll be getting a set of QFM's. All the benefits of the Formulas without the squeal and a MUCH cheaper price to boot. I could get all four pads fitted for the price of just one set of TS2000's. Go QFM, they are a good pad. I would have got them in the first place if I wasn't in such a hurry to upgrade my std brakes after delivery.
