Brakes Time GPS MJET

Appears its almost time for me to get my brakes done on the front and it looks to be very very dear from FIAT approx 300ish.

Whats everyone else with an MJET GPS done about new brakes? I've had a quick search and cant find much.

brakes4u.co.uk is coming out just shy of 100 for Green Stuff pads and their standard Discs.

Anyone else got ideas,reviews and prices?

Re: Brakes Time GPS MJET

How many miles have you done to need new disks as well? Front pads from EBD Direct are 53.89.

I accept I dont blaze around these days but I do get a shift on, I suppose a lot of Motorway miles has been to the benefit of my brakes.

I think I'll go for Red Dot grooved discs and some pads from them when the time comes, the original pads / discs do have a little fade when coming out of Warp...

A while back someone made the valid point that a lot of the brake kits are common across models. So don’t get caught paying a premium for (say) GP pads/discs when they maybe no different from those fitted to (say) a *Stilo at half the cost.

* I think it was a Stilo mentioned but unconfirmed.

Can anyone cross ref. P/No.s on this for confirmation? ... (amended 2009/05/01 17:24) although thinking again, the P/No's may not flag up they're common.

Re: Brakes Time GPS MJET

Am I right in saying to stick with Standard Discs, and just get some tasty pads? Wonder if any Vaux-cough-hall-cough-arg Discs would fit too?

Re: Brakes Time GPS MJET

Try your local motor factors. Last month I got new front mintex pads for 1.9 sporting think they were about 22 for a set including VAT. They are the same pads that are on the Stilo so think thats why they are reasonable.

Got rear ones last week an they were 38. Still not bad though for mintex pads.

That was from Coulthards Motor Factors in Bishop Auckland, Co. Durham, if you ring them they may be able to post out to you. Sure they will ave a website also.
