Default Pagid or Eicher brake discs? eurocarparts..

theres a 10 pounds price difference, its 28 quid for each of the pagid rear brake discs, or 18 for the eicher....

im not too bothered about long term running, just need to pass the MOT and keep her driving well for next three months,

is it worth paying the extra?


same for the pads....eicher rear break pads are 13 quid!! as opposed to 28 for pagid...??

will it come back to haunt me if i get the eicher?


thanks

the way i see it is that they are brakes and there to save yours and others lives in an emergency...can you afford to buy cheaper for it in return to not stop in time?

your best bet is to get onto google and search for reviews on each make...also i find cheaper ones squeek lol

id say get the more expensive....

I agree with John it is best practice to buy better quality quality discs/pads as they are less prone to squeal or warping

I bought Pagid rears last year for my 307. They were great for a fortnight then started to squeal very badly. The anti squeal pads were rubbish. I stripped them down, cleaned the remains of the pads off and used copper grease. Not a peep since.

I've since noticed that Pagid pads come with a pack of grease.

I believe Pagid pads were standard fit on the F50, and they're also standard fit on most Audi's, presumably that makes them pretty decent.

Since it's brakes we're talking about, I agree with others, why skimp on something that could potentially save your life, or someone else's.

Easy enough to pop down local motor factors and get a tube
