    I'm sure one or two of Us/You will be interested in this company, a colleague has persauded them to start retailing these fantastic items, (to start in the new year), Although the web site does not boast it, A friend inside Maranello tells me that this is the same company that helped to develop the Enzo's brake's ???

    All the talk around has been on how long before they wear out and need replacing.

    I've got ceramic brakes and I hoping they don't wear out too soon
    as they cost a fortune to replace.

    There dosn't seem to be any reliable data on wear.
    It just depends who you talk to.

    You've only got to search back on the threads on this forum to find so
    many different views.
    Every thing from they will last a life time to replacing them after 1500 miles.

    For me only time will tell.
    So here's hoping I don't need to go there.

    But having said that, a very interesting web site and definately worth seeing.


    Thanks

    Morning Tony,

    Yes there is a warning light.

    So hopefully when it lights up it time to replace pads
    and not the carbon discs.
