Having a debate, cant seem to find the answer.

While i'm here, can anyone recommend some good front discs and pads... nothing too pricey.

Cheers

wikipedia say 226 hp (169 kW) 2JZ-GE engine, import sites says 220 so I think between 220 - 230

Naaah mate. Nowhere is the UK spec GS300 Sport mk1 gonna be 220-230. The Mk2 with vvt-i is only 218bhp.

Stats taken from Lexus UK website, and from the review below.

Yes, wikipedia states 226bhp for the mk1 aristo, but remember those stats are for JDM (japanese domestic market) models and not for uk cars. The only way your mk1 gs300 is making 226 as standard is if it was imported from Japan as an aristo.

I recently put 'Black Diamond' drilled and grooved discs and pads on the front and what a :tsktsk: difference compared to stock brakes. A hundred times (well maybe exagerating a bit) better. I think about 220 smackers delivered with a 2 day delivery as they are made to order.
