Can i just add to this my car went through iva fine with drums on the back too and the brakes are very very good for fast road use

Drums do look rubbish but on such a light car they do the job fine

Apparently disks are common on the back of most cars due to costs and ease of balancing ABS systems

(I'll be using drums, just a set of mintex shoes and away you go )
