Front Discs and Pads

Looking to change my front discs and pads on my evo multair 105bhp. Looking at just something standard and found some bosch and eicher on carparts for less/eurocarspares.
Anybody used these and have an opinion on them or does anyone recommend any other brand.
Cheers

Stef

Re: Front Discs and Pads

www.mtecbrakes.com for discs and pads.


http://www.remmenexperts.nl/en/ for pads.


I use Mtec only grooved, Black Edition discs, and Ferodo DS Performance pads on both my daily drivers, and it is just perfect.
It's a straight swap with the original parts, but braking has improved a lot.

Was trying to avoid taking wheel off because as you say Charlie unable to get a proper reading in sit.
I have just purchased some eicher discs and pagid pads off eurocarparts they assure me it's 257mm. Will fit tomorrow.

Cheers

Re: Front Discs and Pads

Back to the discs and pads they were 257mm after all fitted them today eicher discs and pagid pads they seem fine . Having said that not driven it hard yet . My car has done 48k on a 10 plate and although from the wheel the discs looked nice and clean and even wear with a lip on em, the inside was a different story full of grooves on the disc with only 50% of the pad actually making contact with the surface of the disc, the rest was just rust.
Beware all check them
