    I bought discs off ebay mate and just used a set of halfords pads and they seem good but depends what you wanna spend and what quality you want

    You could get some carriers from an S3 so you can run S3 discs.

    I run OEM S3 discs on mine with EBC pads and its bob on. With discs get the best you can afford and avoid cheap ebay drilled grooved ones etc because they will turn to cheese sooner or later.

    If you dont want to go for S3 discs then just go for standard ones with decent pads.

    Standard discs and uprated pads such as ferrodo ds.
