Front discs are warped :( only done 6k road miles and 2 laps of the nordschleife.
Pads move freely with zero binding. Must be cheap crappy oe discs.

What do people recommend for replacements? Im not made of money but i'd like a decent set.

Whatever you do, don't buy those cheap Chinese ones... There are heaps of ppl with those around but I'm yet to see a set that doesn't warp under constant track conditions.

I have Alth Full Floating rotors.. I think I paid somewhere in the 250 range for the set. Check them out.

Well someone told me to check that there actually warped, and that they haven't got crap in the rivots making them none floating. I've put a bit of wd in them and given them a little tap with a hammer, at work im gonna get some compressed air on them to blow the shit out if any.
I've also reset my calipers.

Thought its worth a try before i spend £300+ on new galfers.

if after checking that they arent warped. pull the rotors, and buff them out with a 3m buffing pad. it might be material build up.
