Hi mate, have a look at the following site:

http://stores.ebay.com/Brake-Masters-Direct-Wholesale

For 250 USD you get front and rear brake disks plus pads. The ship charges are 110 USD to Greece so it should be similar for UK. I have ordered them so once I install then I will inform you about the performance

i found that the redstuff were less dusty because of the harder compound, i wouldn't go with them on the back though because unless you drive it like you stole it they will never get warm enough to be effective, i also wouldn't go with anything harder than redstuff on the front unless it is a track car because you will have the same problem as putting redstuff in the rear. i would also keep an eye on the drilled discs for a while because they can sometimes crack between the holes, this doesn't happen that often though and is more of a problem on certain cars. if you haven't ordered the discs yet try www.camskill.com they won't list the discs for the IS but they will be able to order them for you, they can also get black coated discs that look guite good. the black comes off the part of the discs that the pad touches but will stay on the rest of the discs, in the drill holes for example, this stops them rusting and looking manky!

Hi mate,

yeah, they look really good. I've never heard of the brake pad make before though? If you could let me know how you get on with them though. Cheers

Hi I found them on ebay while I was looking to change my brake disks too. I have not installed them yet on my vehicle since I am waiting for the SC to be sent to Greece in order to place everything on the car once i take it to the garage.
