need new front discs and pads on the ol' S3! mintex and pagid seem to be of similar price, was just wondering if anyone would advise one over the other and if so why.
Both Pagid and Mintex standard pads are manufactured by TMD friction, so chances are they will be the same thing, but I do prefer mintex pads with pagid discs( which are coated), the race stuff I haven't used though.
i've had ferodos in the past, and they are fapping good, but dont seem to last all that long... got through a set in 7k in my last A3!?
Thats crazy. Can't see why they would wear so quickly. I've had mine on my car for about 10-12000 miles and still plenty life left in them.
Eurocarparts.com are normally good
Yea, it is a possibility that it may of had something to do with my riving style
And it may also be the same reason my last one ended up like this:
but we live (some how!?) and we learn!
so in one breath you suggest you are heavy on the brakes and in the next, you buy cheap mintex disks and pads
Do you like hedges?
that's an interesting comment. . . i was almost swayed by the pagid discs just cos the finish looks a little differnt (must be the coating!). Does the coating make them stop better, last longer or a bit of both?
