    I take mine to an Independent dealer and I save a fortune. Anyway guys, I wanted to find out. I've got an E39 5 series (2000) and I changed the front pads a couple of weeks ago. But since then I've been getting some judder when breaking and accelerating through 50mph-60mph, and a friend from Kwik fit suggested i change my discs. I've bought some new discs now, and wanted to know whether I need to buy new brake pads again, or whether these will wear into the new discs OK?

    The judder would suggest warped discs.. and no if it's only been a couple of weeks you'll be fine with the "very slightly" worn pads on new discs.

    Nope, not just you!

    I got my redstuff pads and grooved dimpled disks on a week ago, and so far, I love them!

    They look AWESOME! and that wicked "grrrrrrr" noise on braking is a billion times better than the horrible "SQUEEEEEEEEEEL" i used to have on OEM discs.

    They seem to stop a lot better when hot too, cold performance is probably the same, but after a good thrashing it's like having actual anchors!

    In my recent experience with these discs they warp like crazy,steering shaking like mad.
    They were good at first so fitting was good, but progressively got worse.
    It could be due to the lack of surface area in contact with the pad,i need to go back to OEM discs.
    Mind you i had purchased these from Ebay !

    Here you go ED, YOUR!! car fitted with CRN Dimpled and Grooved without wheels





    I have gone for CRN (PAGID) Grooved Discs (yet to be fitted)



    because I find it un-nerving to be driving on the Autobahn in the rain (for a fair distance at speed without having to apply the brakes) then find when I take the Exit and apply the brakes on first application nothing happens, (might just be with M-Sport brake cooling ducts being uber efficient OR more likely previous owner used cheap pads) BUT!! It gets me every time!!
