I thought I saw that ECS now had a rear upgrade as well?

If y'all fellas recall, I was asking this a month or so ago, and still
haven't decided. Personally, I'd decided on the Red Stuff pads, which
did specifically mention your heavier sports saloons and the Evo, WRX

Then the problem was finding the discs. ECS seemed to only list front
discs, nice grooved or cross drilled IIRC. But no rears. From both an
asthetic and performance POV I was wary of changing the front discs
but putting stock on the rears. So I tried to get hold of an all-round
set, but I'm struggling. Zimmermans of Germany get mentioned now and
then, but despite being in the UK, I can't seem to find much in the
way of a stockist - though there are in the US!

Incidentally, if anyone knows of a Zimmerman Brakes website, please
post the address, I've not found one.
