Gooday John, I'll chip in - I saw Peter's rotors the other day, they look absolutely fantastic. Both Peter's and Troy's cars are gorgeous, I have rotor envy in Peter's case and spoiler envy in Troy's.

I'm also interested in how the rotors perform, I had a very bad experience with R1 concept rotors with my F Type which looked awesome and grabbed OK, but developed dreadful sound issues after about 6 months and I had to remove them, then R1 refused any refund.

How does the new brake set up feel Peter?
Seems pretty good John. I have not slammed them yet because DBA advised to give then 200klm before that. They look nice though.
I remember test driving an FM GT at the dealer before deciding on the FN and it's brakes were very grabby. I have never had that in this one.

Inspired by Tony's post a couple of days ago, I went ahead and ordered a set of those blue coil covers.

Now shopping for oil separators. :giggle:

So I took this photo recently after some time on the Track. The Green FN has Magnaride (not lowered) with 20” rims and 35 series tyres. The red FM has 20” rims with 30 series tyres, and lowered coil overs. I’ve asked the owner to provide me how details on how much his is lowered and will update. (Edit: red front 25-30 drop, rear 40)

Download the pic and zoom in. It’s an interesting comparison.

Cool, given you like OEM look I'd go with the Ford Performance oil separator. I put mine on donkeys ago and it does what its supposed to do. A bit of engine bay bling is good and I also went for new coil covers a few years ago and went for Ford Racing ones 🤘😎🤘🐎....where do ya stop 🤣

Ha ha, that's exactly what I have just literally ordered! :like:

I like how the Ford Performance oil separator clips onto an existing mounting point on the rocker cover, plug and play. And yes, looks OEM as it is OEM.

Good choice 👍 I like OEM look too so have done most mods with Ford stuff, like the strut tower brace, Ford Performance oil separator and hood struts and coil covers. GT350 steering wheel and track pack spoiler, plain coolant cover and other US spec things like boot panel and lower grill. The great thing with these cars is you have lots of options to do it like you want. It's a slippery slope though 🤣🤣🐎
