Looking very nice there Neil

Can't wait to see the difference tomorrow @ CBC. Are you changing the rear ones or just getting them powder coated to match.

I did wonder about powder coating the rears, but it would be a pain in the ****, piston out job, so I'm just leaving it as is.

The rear calipers are still holding up well with the hammerite, tempted to give them a going over with POR15 though!

Well after 500 miles, they are bedding in nicely, stopping power is superb, not felt that before in the A4!

I had a look yesterday Neil, they are the business

Have you hit your head on the windscreen yet

Must be a massive difference to standard.

Not hit my head yet

But you can feel some real force when you use the brakes now which is very reassuring when some numpty pulls out on you without looking.
