    Depends what you want? Got a set of Mintex Pads and Discs for 75 all in. Check out the other thread as well on Brembo/DS for other prices and combos

    Honestly? No.

    They are 'OK' for the money though.

    However, good value would be the Mintex sets on eBay which are same/less money and are a lot better products.

    Or some Mintex Extreme pads from GSF at 50 quid and some ATE Powerdiscs from Eurocarparts at 110 the pair. But you can aks for discount both those places and get at least 10% off.

    The discs will be fine, I just think you'll find better pads (with a better friction co-efficient) for around the same money.


    That said, they look OK, just not 'great' value for money.
