    I have upgraded to cupra r Brembo's but they are due pads and discs, are these any good? They cost the same as most people charge for discs only so I don't really have much to lose?

    Avoid at all costs is my suggestion.

    Mintex are a good make, usually top notch gear, but they seem to do these 'brake boxes' that are stupidly cheap, and come with discs and pads in a box just like that. I've made the mistake of using them twice before, second time assuming the first occasion was bad luck, but on both counts they've been ****. worse than standard, very dusty, and lacking in power and cold bite.

    i'd avoid them myself.
