Hi Airborne--Just fitted 190E pads all round ( Mintex ) give the supplier the chass number or they should also be able pick it up from the reg to get the right ones ?
The front discs were ok but replaced the heavilly pitted rears with ATE O.E. and two new standard font springs KLEIN ( Swedish) as o/s front spring was broken -car sits well and handles fine again now- done 300 mile trip this afternoon no probs.
( total cost £136 )

thats cheap probelm with my car is orgionally its from isle of mann so never comes up on shop screens however ill be taking them out the weekend and find out exactly what types to get im also having to do my downpipe and rocker cover gasket which again wernt as easy to locate as previous cars infact il probally be gettin parts from the internet.

;)Quick one to all 190e cosworth drivers, instead of standard HT leads for £80 ish you can get Magnicore Ht leads for the same price which obviousally give you more power to the plugs;)
