i was told discs typically need replacing every 2 pad changes...depending on pads of course (performance are harder and wear discs faster).

it also depends on how many miles you do in the car and what type of driving etc on when you should get them replaced.

being brakes and a safety item, i would start looking sooner rather than later, ie in the next 6 months on typical driving....but its always best to seek professional help on this.

well typical driving is 9k a year approx hardly get chance to put foot down being in the west mids so its start stop and occasionally get into 5th gear. So would a change of pads be sufficent this time and replace both next year ?

In yours opinion.

mintex are pretty good from what i hear. i always say rule of thumb, dont go for cheap parts go mid range... i bought a set of pads from ecp as they are on discount at the time...pagids or something.

edit: just seen they are 30% off...us DP30 as voucher code.
