well my front brakes have nearly completly worn right down and mot time is a few weeks away. so i thought i may aswell get them now save any probs then.

im in the process of moving out of home for first time so money is quite tight.

what should i do:

standard oe discs and pad (brembo and textar) - cheap option

or

brembo max discs and textar oe pads - not sure if thats a good combo?

or

brembo max disc and order some ebc red stuffs - go all out and be skint!

what do you guys reckon?

Brembo max discs of ebay i just got a pair for £90, then ferodo ds2500 pads, If your not caning it too badly then standard discs and better pads will suffice.

i used greenstuff which i thought were decent and on track, but ds2500 are better warren4 had some and they were better, noone on the forum uses redstukk tbh just ds2500

definatly get the lines sorted if you can afford it - only about £50. I noticed a massive difference. I use brembo max with greenstuff's all-round (only road use and so greenstuff seem great for me)

thats interesting as everyone seems to put down the greenstuffs and no one really likes them.

yeah ive heard mixed reviews, i got them pretty cheap and no track days planned so i thought i'd give them a go, i carnt compare to the ds2500's but for the road i think they're more that enough - big improvement over standard

haha you'd be shocked at the price i can get the hc's for - benefits of the job ;)

I would have had them instead if i'd have known! Max's worked out cheaper than the hc's for me at the time
