Why are you having problems?  The buttons should only need a quick spin and clean with brake cleaner a couple of times a year if that.

At least that's all mine need,in fact I just gave mine a refresh yesterday just as a precaution and it wasn't necessary as they were still rotating freely

Buy some Brembo Oro's, the original Brembo's are just too thin. I've had 2 sets of the originals warp, buttons were free, discs clean but they still pulse when you use the brakes. Not a problem at speed but going slow they are a pain in the arse. I've no idea what the Armstrong's perform like but being named after the biggest baddest family of Reivers in the history of the Debatable Lands can't be a bad thing. Wink

As you suggested with the discs. My discs were a nightmare coming home from Cornwall last Monday the high speed judder was the last straw as they are getting worse. Was informed the Oro,s are 1/2 a millimetre thicker than oem up to 5mm so shouldn't warp so easily , bloody wife's Yaris is getting bad too , but they can wait !

Ok only done 18 MLS and the rain started, So spin the wheel and sounds like pads are in wrong way round, started normal light braking etc , don't seem much different than std Brembo but when I had to hit a bit harder after bend ( line of cars and a bloody Combine harvester doing 5 mph ish ) Yes the are better than std "my god they do bite" made up and that's with two fingers and shorty levers ! And to boot no vibration or pulsing and surging at low speeds . Shame fuel light and more so the rain stopped play, pleased !
