Hello. If I replace the front brake pads do I need to change the disc's aswell? If the disc's have got plenty of life left in them can I just replace the pads? Thanks

if the disc's are badly scored, cracked or have a significant wear lip on the outer edge, are worn to minimum thickness then changing pads only is fine.

The new pads will take longer to bed in than if new discs are also fitted

If the discs are in good shape then leave them. You should through about three sets of pads before you need to change the discs.
You may get a slightly spongy feel on the brake pedal, but after perhaps a dozen brake applications in normal use they should be fine.
Brake pads, although a vital safety item, are very simple to change unless you need a tool to wind back an incorporated handbrake adjuster. 207's don't have this on the fronts.

Roger.
