    Looking for some advice here, following on from what i posted here,...
    2001 E46 330ci - Brake noise

    The garage said about fitting Delphi Discs and new pads including handbrake, but i'm not sure which way to go. Do i go for these (are they good?) or for an uprated set and then for which ones?
    Looking for anyone who has this done, or with more than my virtually zero knowledge on this, to shed some light on what to do.
    Thanks

    delphi are what a lot of garages get supplied with from the local factors. the discs are alright. most use textar pads which are pretty good but its well worth checking what they use as some use pads which create a lot of dust and are frankly not great. uprated pads on standard discs is a very very good set up and more than you'll ever need on the road.
    no harm in uprating though if the price difference isnt all that great
