Thought I may aswell give these a try. I'll need AP 4 pots for the front. Who's the best (cheapest) supplier?

I use to get them from demon tweaks. What compound are you going for? Any of their carbon metallic pads will kill the wheels and body work very quickly, awesome pads though.

The best ones - for track. I have used Pagids RS 14's before . They kill the discs and wheels too. I am currently using CL5. Good for dust and have been good in performance however whilst they are not completly used up they seem to have lost their bite.

Try PerformanceBraking, 01600 713117 Old school customer service, great outfit, competitive prices, perhaps a tinge more than you might find online, they might do a price match if you ask. Got a pair of RS14s for my AP 4 pots CP7600 for 164.83 Part no. S20349R901-RS14 and RS15s for the rear for 128.62 I don't find they wear the discs unduly, mine is a daily driver and do 2 track days a year and I'm into my third year of the ally belled discs with a fair bit of life left in them which hopefully should last the next two track days as the discs are eye wateringly expensive.

Bloody hell - 210 for fronts only!! Are those 'lotus' AP 4 pots the same as the VX ap 4 pots?

What compounds should i be getting for road and track use?(not everyday road use)
