    Hi all,

    Can someone give me some advice on what brand of brake discs and pads i should be buying for my car. The brake light has recently come on and ive been given a price of £450 including fitting from my local garage.
    I dont know what brands of discs and pads the mechanic will be fitting.
    Is 450 a good price or should i be looking around and buying the parts myself and just having them fitted.
    I do quite a bit of driving (approx 350 miles a week) so am willing to spend for quality but nothing to expensive.
    Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

    take a look on www.eurocarparts.com pop in your reg and see if it works out cheeper mate

    it should be a bit cheeper buying yourself and at least you know what parts you are using, have you thought about trying to fit them yourself?

    Thanks for your reply tony, ive been told not to go near euro parts. Apparently the parts from there are not worth buying, better off spending a bit more for more quality. My problem is i dont know what makes of discs or pads to get. Also, I wouldnt have the time to fit them myself unfourtunately.

    There you go mate, they are all branded and should fit your car. they do pads too

    Obviously the choice in brand depends on your budget but as i said they are branded hope this helps

    EuroCarParts are fine as long as you know what you're buying. For brake discs & pads, Pagid are a very reputable brand You can buy cheaper/unheard of brands, you pays your money....

    Personally I'd give forum vendor CRN a bell, I recently bought from them:-
    front and rear Pagid discs, f & r Textar pads and Pagid handbrake shoes cheaper than ECP prices
