    I had a bad time with Mintex discs. They performed very badly and wouldn't recommend buying them. I have had Zimmermann's coated discs front and back since July and they appear to be working well. Otto Zimmermann Bremsscheiben GmbH - Zimmermann Brake Discs Brake Pads

    i seen on the forum good and bad reviews with mtec and mintex and pagid.
    Where did you order them from if you don't mind me asking, take it the fronts have integrated wear leads with them than attached to some kind of clip like ebc?

    I bought mine through a garage over here. I think you can buy them directly from Zimmermann but not 100% on that. Yeagh, the wear indicators were all there. After my experience with the Mintex ones which weren't the cheapest, it's worth paying a bit more for better discs imho....I wanted to go a full front S4 brake upgrade but the caliper carriers were far too expensive to justify that option so just went for the pads and discs and good quality brake fluid change too.
