I then decided to get the discs grooved so spoke with http://www.crn-uk.com/ who are based near me (there website is not the best but the two chaps who own the company are spot on. At first I got a price to groove the discs which wasnt cheap but then realised they could supply PAGID discs. They basically get there discs from Euro Car Parts.
from them I paid £250 all in for all PAGID products, 4 discs and 2 sets pads AND the grooving, complete with pad wear sensors, also now come corrosion coated (see below)
not had chance to get them fitted yet
all ready for fitting

Chosen by many of the world's leading vehicle manufacturers, as well as race teams at the very highest levels of motorsport, Pagid is one of the world's most respected braking brands and a name synonymous with research and development. Its new coated discs are just the latest in a long line of innovations.
The unique surface coating on Pagid's coated discs provides grease-free protection against corrosion, allowing for faster fitting than conventional discs, which require the installer to remove a layer of protective grease.
Donna West, director of communications, comments: "Pagid's new coated discs are the perfect partner to their O.E. quality brake pad range. They offer a quicker and easier fitment procedure, as they're straight out of the box and onto the vehicle and, whilst they're ideal for vehicles fitted with alloy wheels, as the special coating offers long-lasting protection against unsightly corrosion, every vehicle manufacturer is covered by Pagid's extensive range."
