    Vaux after much deliberation I've decided to go for Pagid drilled and vented discs with pagid pads.. they are good quality and dirt cheap.. less than £100 for discs, pads and sensor! Look good and will perform well with the goodridge braided hoses and fresh brake fluid!

    I've been running Pagid drilled & slotted discs on my E39 for a number of months now.

    They are fitted with EBC Redstuff ceramic pads, goodridge braided hose and new fluid, i honestly couldn't be more impressed.

    The discs have some sort of coating on them, they still look new not a spot of corrosion on them.

    I've heard the red stuff pads are a bit slack unless they are warm.. is that not right??

    when i 1st put mine on i was a bit worried that that was the case...but they have a layer of grit to help them bed in and once this is gone they are fine...as good as stock imho

    I have been deliberating for a while now, on which way to go for discs and pads. Had wondered about Mintex, as they're quite cheap on ebay, but after reading some comments, I am going to go for Pagids all round.
    I fitted a set of Pagid discs and pads to the front of my Land Rover earlier this year, as the originals were warped, and the transformation in stopping power over the originals was immense, but thought they may not be up to the job on my e36, but I think it's now time to take the plunge and go for it. So it's Pagid discs and pads alround, plus hand brake shoes while I'm on with it!
    Would I see any benefit fitting braided hoses aswell? never had them before, so don't know if any use for me
    Cheers

    I put oem disks on mine, with textar pads. Have to say, they havent let me down yet.

    Had a lot of brakes on my silvia, from EBC greenstuff (never again) to DS2500 (fanbloodytastic when warm..) and other than looking pretty, have never found the need for grooved disks. Drilled, yup. Had them on the omega and they were great. Big car that too, to stop in a hurry...
    Made a nice swoooshing noise too..

    Every car i've had i've fitted braided hoses to. Stainless ones so that they dont go furry

    They do make a difference to pedal feel, but you can argue that the placebo effect or just new fluid and they fact that you had to bleed them could have made a difference.

    They will be going on the 323 in the summer when i can feel my fingers out in the garage again!!

    Yes agree with you there, far too cold to be out under a car at this time of year. Will have to wait until it warms up, unless there is some kindly sole out there, who would like to lend me their big warm garage?
