Just bought some new brakes for the 1.2 SXI.

You lot think i should have gone for the 1.4 brakes which are vented or the ones that i got?

Just looking for opinions

by improvement you mean better braking as a whole? stopping distance and responsiveness?

i'm right in thinking i only need the two discs right? just for the front?

Where would be a good place to get some new calipers from? Couldnt see any on that site...

Also, stuff from that site, it seems cheaper than what i've seen elsewhere, is the stuff good quality or am i best to avoid it?
