Buy a classic MINI with 10" wheels and fit 7.5" discs.....it'll be quicker than your BINI 

 

"Everybody should own a MINI at some point, or you are incomplete as a human being" - James May

"WET COOPER", Partsguy1 (Terry Snell of Penticton BC ) - Could you send the money for the unpaid parts and court fees.
Ordered so by a Judge

The EBC Yellows don't need to have 'heat buildup' to become effective, thus the street friendly description.

Check out the EBC yellows - these are track rated pads that are street friendly.
