    hi all , my front pads are worn and only alittle left on rear pads. i only have standard brake setup, nothing special.
    Am wanting to find out the best and cheapest option for replacing pads [front and rear].
    Due to fronts so worn , front discs slightly warped . will this affect new pads.
    Also should warning lights have picked up on this.:
    Thanks peeps.

    there should be a wear indicater fitted to your nearside front pads (and osr) that should've picked up this early enough for you to get it done.
    its a black plastic clip that attaches to the inner (piston side) pad, then connects into a junction box in the arch.
    cheapest option is to see gsf or ecp for some textar/ jurid brake pads and discs.
    you could try ebay but you will never be sure you arent getting fake stuff off there.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    my front discs are ever so slightly scored due to worn pads .
    would i need to replace these also.
