Galfer discs for the front.

I got some interesting blink my and Wifey's Stroms.

Check it out. Not cheap ($345 a set) but very clean and tons of flash.

The center hub comes in black or blue/grey.

I always thought it was called "bling"?

Am I wrong, or are you playing with us or are you just saying that the rotors are such "bling" they make you "blink"?

Yes, I believe "bling" is the word you're looking for. Definitely good bling. How's the performance?

Discs

They actually feel like they grab a bit better at the start of braking. I had the pads replaced when I got the discs, but they're standard.

It does make the front end dive a bit worst with the standard springs. I had to to take the preload on the front to 5, so Progressive here I come.

Ok, BLING. Jeez! :rolleyes:
