    DS2500 brake pads now on eBay... cheap??

    Previously I could only find these in certain places, including from Bill...

    Now, however, it appears that they are on eBay from Demon Tweaks and they're much cheaper :S???

    Correct me if I'm wrong...;

    I've generally found Camskill to be the cheapest way to go. Comparing the Demon Tweeks eBay listing for Clio 197 pads with Camskill I get a saving of about 5 plus free delivery (total about 14 saving).

    The S3 front pads are HERE

    Bill at Badger5 is definitely worth a shout though.

    The part number also indicates the rear

    Lol, no. Not sure what it is about me, but I have to be the unluckiest when it comes to deals!

    Was warned off the Brembos on ebay as they clearly the wrong type and size.

    Just spoken to Demon Tweaks and the guy in that ad - top fella, understood the issue and has cancelled the order. Top dollar service, just a shame they're not what I thought they were!

    Got them from ebay, shop called strictly dubs

    Bit pissed off with them really, the ad stated that there was plenty of life in the disks. Yeah the disks were nice and thick if you included the layer of rust on them. Have had them refaced but its touch and go re the wear limit
