Thats the way the instructions said they should be fitted. But i look forward to what RedDot have to say if Pimp gets chance to have a word.

I'm pretty certain they're fitted the wrong way.

Fitting them the way you have will hugely increase brake pad wear.
Think about the way the wheel turns.

I thought it was weird too but thats what RedDots instructions specifically said the 20 & 40 groves are fitted the other way but the 6 are fitted the way I have them done. I was going to scan in the instructions but I can't seem to find them.

Rob - I see your point!?! That is the most bizarre thing I have ever known and I'm not too convinced by their reply. I can't understand why the no. of grooves would make the difference? However, having read your other thread about the grinding brakes noise - the first thing I'd do is swap 'em over. - 2 hours work - max! gotta be worth a try.

Edit - I think their comment about 'for best result' is the key - as has been said before, putting them on like that will likely increase the 'grab' on the disc but - it'll eat pads like I don't know what! - and is almost certainly the source of your 'grinding noise under heavy braking'.

End of the day it's your call but if it were me then I'd swap 'em, bed 'em in and see how it drives - I'd bet my mortgage it's smoother than at the moment.

Opps i forgot to take a pic. anyays i did't matter.

I have these on my 145 and there is a little bit more noise, but saying that i have never had groved disc on any of my cars before.

We fitted them to a calibra 16V last night, front and rears. once thay where fitted, we made sure thay where beded in right. we braked as hard as we could from 100-0. smoke every where and now thay seem fine. Loads better then before.

Pimp - have you fitted them the 'traditional' way or the 'back to front way' as directed by Red Dot?

Grooved discs are always more noisy than non grooved/drilled - no matter what make they are. They do have a grindy noise, it's the pad running over the grooves. The noise will be quite loud in comparison to what you had before.

Websites are like a**eholes, everyone has one, and im wary of any bloke trying to direct people into their's.

The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, 'Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride...' And we ... kill those people.

Not finished mine yet as the car is still in bits. I'm still at this stage as my new airbox still hasn't arrived yet sad.gif

If you've got a facelift then be aware of the screws that connect the bumper to the wheel arch liners as the can be troublesome (see here). If you've got pre-facelift bumpers then plastic clips are used instead of screws so you shouldn't have any such issues smile.gif

Now the straight through pipe, this would be visible (and feel-able) by looking down infront of the airbox correct? From wedging my hand down into the gap, it seems that my car is already running the straight though pipe - I can't feel a bend as far back as I can get my hand in.

Is it definitely necessary to remove the bumper to check for the resonator?

Cheers!

No, you can see it with the bumper in sutu. follow the pipe out of the front of the airbox and it goes down into the bumper cavity through a gap in the inner wing. The new straight through pipe is ribbed (see CMA's pic in the first post) so you'll be able to tell just by feeling it what's actually fitted to your car.
