    Just got a full set of discs and pads for a 2007 2.0ltr sportback

    the price they quoted was £199.20
    BUT
    if you do a click and collect from euro car spares

    the price came down to £137.45


    What a saving wowowowow.

    and these are exactly the same as original equpment. ie. Pagid.

    Ah I didn't check that, the bigger disks are about £3 so another £6 on the fronts so the pricing is pretty big

    Also did you try any discount codes on ECP ?

    what other tools will i need to do the job

    I have got the caliper rewind tool
    got break pads and discs

    but i do not want to get to the point where i need a different tool than i have?

    is there a special tool for removing the calipers? or is it just a hex drive?

    hoping to do this weekend so quick answers would be appreciated

    many thanks

    The only specialised tool is the piston wind back tool. Everything else is standard bolts including caliper mounting bolts.

    Only other tools you should need are 13,15,17 spanners and/or sockets, hammer, pry bar and an allen key for disc removal

    we fit pagid discs at my workshop the discs are excellent,there zinc coated so there dont rust but pads are not as good as original equipment have had a few isssues with the pads.would recomend pagid discs with ate pads that are oe if purchasing from eurocar parts.i find this the best combination to fit.
