Hey all,
the brakes in my baby are shagged and i am about to replace them.. Does anyone know if putting slotted & dimpled rotors on is legal or will i need a blue plate?
Is a set of Brembos worth the effort?
what is a rough price for a set of front and rears?
will i need to get a blue plate for them?

hope some can shead some light.

I may be wrong but i dont think you need to get engineered for brake "upgrades"
PM Hipsi on these forums for more info and pricing on the kits he sells.

A full set of Dimpled & Slotted Rotors and Pad will cost = $1k, I've done mine and they are a vast improvement on original Mitsubishi's

If you've got a facelift and you find the Brembos at a decent price, then go that way. If you have a P.F.L. then just get a good set of rotors, a good set of pads and braided lines, you'll be just as impressed with the difference.

You're not wrong. Rotors and Pads are a direct oem replacement part, hence no approval is required. My belief is same goes for the Brembos since they're a bolt-on replacement that exceeds the performance of the originals. If you were to fit a caliper that required a bracket, that then would need engineering approval.

I run the QSL pads biting onto RDA slotted rotors. Very very impressed with them. Pull the car up well. Nice and cheap too, see the traders section for more info.

They are also apparently better than EBC Green and Red Stuff too!
