you know what, i do remember reading that in your thread once! Shame on me for not heeding that before i bought these.

Oh, another thing, i attempted to fix my rear hatch 'leak' into the headliner, apparently to no avail. I used old headlight butyl rubber sealant to stuff the grommets where the wiring goes from the car to the hatch. Assuming i did that right (and maybe i didn't, but then again its not like the plastic to metal seals are really waterproof in the first place?) is there any good diagrams of where the sunroof drains really go? I can't seem to find any solid data on that.

Replaced my shot 034 engine mount with this nice BFI stage 1 unit. See how much stiffer she is now...

Hit 70,000 miles yesterday. Beauty shot for that!

Ordered dimpled brembo rotors and brembo ceramic pads direct from brembo - less than $600 for what will hopefully be some great brakes! The oem ones are ORIGINAL TO THE CAR, as far as the previous owner knew. While im not sure about that, they atleast had 30k on them. Just hated the dust.

Bremo drilled rotors and brembo ceramic pads came in! Getting them from the only authorized brembo dealer they are doing 10% off now, FYI which comes out to like 550 - a steal! If these are anything as good as oem quality im gonna be really pleased with these for street use.

Throwing these on along with some BFI 10MM spacers tomorrow, hopefully.

Yeah likely just some marketing claim but it is an 'official brembo site' lol.

Whatevs - regardless i just wrapped up the install which for once went without a hitch!
They feel great, no squeaks yet, again hopefully less dust in the long run! Being ceramic, they dont have a crazy initial bite, but do stomp down well when you need, which is fine for a street car. I think theres vcds tweaks to make them bite harder if i decide to.

10mm spacers added all around; the oem wheels are 48 offset and these are 43 - if i recall correctly, so i figured based on what others do with austins i would be safe rocking 10s all around. Alas, the front almost pokes a bit and rubs just a tad over the right bump. So i might swap those for 5's or 7's if it seems bad over time. Otherwise love the look!

There's dramatically less dust than OEM pads.
