Anyone tried discs from here?

Well the total upgrade fever continues on my hgt and have seen these on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Has anyone had any experience of these or this seller, or would it be safe to buy only branded discs from one of the main retailers?

Any advice on either the ebay ones or what else to recomend would be greatly appreciated. Would anyone have any recomendations to matching pads?


Thanks in advance

I wouldn't risk saving pennies on things like disc brakes. You get what you pay for and for only 80 quid these may just be normal discs which have been drilled and grooved.

Better to get dimpled or only grooved as these are less likely to crack.

hehe its been covered a few times. So far people are going for EBC turbo grooved (dimpled and grooved) with green stuff pads, red dot, black diamond (i'm personally getting some of these) and if you have the money tarox g88's

Re: Anyone tried discs from here?

how many miles have you clocked up on these discs?
a set of standard discs that have been machined will obcviously seem fine.

nobody is saying theres anything wrong with them but from someone thats had a disc shear on them trust me you dont want to risk it

Re: Anyone tried discs from here?

did not have the car long after i fitted them i wrote it off. nowt to do with the brakes. they are made by lockheed and good quality. just trying to save u lot some money. but if u prefer to pay double for a name brand go ahead.
