Brake Parts - 1.8L
I am looking for "slightly used" 1.8L pads and rotors.
As I work tirelessly (reading forum) at my internship, I am realizing that my summer finances are not as good as planned. I pay my own tuition, so I save up during the summer, and am not on track this year.
I already have brackets and calipers, but in the time I have rounded up these parts my 1.6L brakes have gone to absolute crap...and there is no sense replacing them when I have the upgrade parts ready.
I know this is ridiculous, but I just can't swing the stainless lines, HPS pads, new NAPA rotors and all that I was originally planning on.
I may already have a line on OEM pads, but would pay a little for something more aggressive that could be trued and has some life in it.
I can also machine rotors if someone local has some they took off for an upgrade.
