    Hi All,

    Just had the car service and the local indy mentioned to me I'll need to replace front disc and pads very soon. Am thinking doing this myself as it will be something else i can say i done to my beema.

    Now the question is i was wondering replacing the front disc and pads with the below

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    do you think its worth the money to upgrade? am going to keep the car so either way i think its a better move?

    I need to buy the sensors still along with the disc and pads

    I'd say save your money and put it towards a better quality kit.

    Pagid make drilled/grooved discs which have a special coating that resists corrosion - those ones in the link do not, just plain steel which will rust and look shit.

    Mintex pads are nothing special either. ABC pads are worth it IMO.
