brakes...... again

ok so my brakes are now officially doing my head in.... i'm not saying that all punto sportings brakes are crap but mine are. i took the car back to the dealer yesterday and they changed the shoes in my rear drums and cleaned my front brakes (well thats what they said),,, my front brakes grind quite a lot (sounds like muck on the disks) and they squeak every now and then. the garage said that they didn't hear a squeak,,, thats annoying cos there is one and it does my head in.

i would change the pads for a fast road pad and see whow you get on with them or uprated discs keeping standard pads and then uprate the pads after to see your preference but i would try the pads as a cheaper 1st option
