    Hi all

    Had a look through the threads and it seems Pagid discs and pads are thought OK replacements. My car is showing replacement needed soon and looking at the pads it seems pretty accurate. The discs don't show any scoring but there is a fair ridge on the outer rim and the vehicle has done 60k miles. Will the discs need changing too?

    The brakes have great feel and I dont want to change the character. Got a price of £56 per disc and £40 for a set of pads (less 30%) from eurocarparts. Are the basic Pagid pads OK for my car - I don't drive hard but the car has had a hard remap.

    Thanks for your time.

    If the discs aren't scored I would't change them. The ridge on the outer rim always looks bigger than it is due to corrosion increasing the thickness here. I always spin the disc while holding the edge of a file against the rim to get rid of the rust when I replace the pads. Not sure about this car but the discs can be a right bitch to get off if they seize on to the hubs. One last reason to leave alone, there's always the risk of introducing runout if you get dodgy discs or aren't really careful cleaning the hubs up.
    And don't forget you'll need to replace the wear indicators.
