EBC GD Sport Discs

Over the next few months EBC GD Sport Discs will change from gold to black. The current gold coating is being phased out and will be replaced by a Black GEOMET coating, which is a new long lasting corrosion resistant finish.

This means that over the next few months the traditional gold finished EBC discs will be replaced with black coated discs. They will still be manufactured to the same high standards.

To improve the chassis our Courtenay Sport Clubman Plus fast road suspension upgrade was fitted, which is a full kit that includes original equipment (OE) genuine Astra VXR dampers and a set of DAP Road springs, which not only improves road holding but also lowers the car by around 25-30mm.

The front and rear brakes were upgraded with EBC Turbo Grooved front and rear discs with EBC Red Ceramic (fast road) pads all round, and the system was bled with DOT 5.1 fluid.
