For a 'H' plate civic GL? The brakes on the car at the mo are rubbish! Would not feel safe if i had to use them! But, i'm struggling to find aftermarket discs as i wanted something that looked nice behind the wheels! LOL, i have found these, there the right size but for a different year Civic! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0285416684" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Can it work?

The shoes i have found seem to be ok and for the right car! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0268782388" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Otherwise i'll just have to get standard discs with aftermarket pads!

In regard to the brakes you can get the front hub setup from a VT and use the disks and calipers from that, should give you plenty of braking power.
;)

On my CRX I am using the front VT hub setup with MG ZS160 disks (these are 282mm) and Prelude calipers with mintex pads.

On a light 4th gen this is enough braking power. On your 1.4 it will be overkill but you can never have too good brakes. I'm going to be using this setup on a 200bhp turbo so you should be fine!
