could try Reland, they sell 8pot kits. if not for the M5 they can get the conversion brackets made.

or you could try this place

Unless you planning on doing some serious track work - the std M5 setup is easily up to the job yes

If your struggling with fade, get some decent pads and fluid smile

you could even go for a big BRAKE conversion rather than just breaking your car...

LPG is your friend, could well save you a small fortune and pay for itself in no time at all if you plan on keeping it, given the price of fuel atm.

Get some Ferodo fast road pads and stick a caliper cover over the std ones to look like 4 pots or something raftl

...you gonna find it very hard to cook the std brakes on the roads lol

i run ferodo ds 2500...due to size n weight of my shed...and they work fkin well..still havent been able to cook them...and thier on standard discs...allbeit 330mm standard discs

the only next step up pad wise is to ds 3000 which are touring car spec and they squeal like fk and last about 500 miles...nt a good choice for a road car

ferodos are the mutts nutz...wouldnt run anything else...

Im running the 3000s on the race car.

Not had any squeeling issues (Even on the roads), bit they do take a couple of stops to get some heat in to them before they start working at 100%

So far Ive done 3 races and 3 practises on them - id say they show 1/4-1/3 wear on the pads.

....they also chew disks wink

so........ When I spoke to you the other day and you told me you bought it from Car zone, was that the truth or did you win it of a none paying customer ?
