    Anyone want to buy some Carbon Lorraine pads?

    Alright i'm going to be placing an order by the end of the week on some Carbon Lorraine pads from the UK. As most of you know I'm a bit of a fan boy for Pagid and also like Endless. Carbon Lorraine is supposed to be pretty magic so I'm going to give them a go and see how I get on. They're supposed to have alot of bite which i'm after and last a surprisingly long time and not crumble once they get bellow the half way mark.

    Have a read around the UK rally forums - they rave about them. Not too well known down here but I'm willing to give them a good try. There are plenty of WRC teams and other race teams using them so thats also good enough for me mucking about in a little Civic down here in NZ .

    Check them out:
    CL Braking UK Premier Distributor of Carbone Lorraine Brake Pads

    Prices are on their site and we dont have to pay VAT. Shipping is 40 pound so if one other person wants something in and we can split the shipping that would be great .

    Pricing seems very fair for top quality pads.

    EP3:
    4070 front - 131 pounds
    4045 rear - 118 pounds

    I'm giving them a try. Anyone else want to split the shipping?

    I might be keen on some. What are you going with RC5+ or RC6 compound?

    I am on a non-flash capable device (thanks Apple) so can't access the full catalogue and am not sure if 4047 (STi WRX and 300Z is the same as R32 GTR? Can you see what the code is for R32 Skyline GTR (non-Brembo) front pads?

    I'm keen Tyson, but can't get the link to work. I'll try Google.
    There is an agent for them in NZ, just trying to think who it is, from memory their pricing was fair too.

    Munkvy - Struggling to find for sure what you're after. Let me know how you get on once you get on a PC. Their email support has been spot on so far.


    BT - cool. I'll be interested to price up the NZ distributor. Have you had any feedback from anyone that has run them? Had a chat with Ross the other day - let me know how you get on, on the ratio front.

    Neil Allport has them but pretty sure someone else stocks them, thinking Les Hunter or Race Brakes.
    Pretty sure a heap of Carbone Lorraine pads came with the S2000 fiesta's.

    I'll do some research & come back to you on all above.
