Default Need new brake discs?

I know they are just generic but will be good enough for road use, £107.95 for four discs and pads is a flipping bargain! They are Drivetec brand, a lot of motor factors stock these and they are trusted. Even if the pads don't last long they are still a great bargain. Got mine ordered.

They're just Re-boxers. Whatever and wherever they can get cheapest at the time, so very hit and miss.

The discs turned out to be Delphi, that are apparently manufactured by Lockheed, good enough for me. As for the Drivetec pads I'll give them a go to run the discs in, if they are no good I've not lost anything, I'll just swap them out for Pagid or the like, it's only for road use.
The company I got them from is a clearance retailer hence the brake set for £107 that usually goes for £180+, so I'm still happy.

Daily driven pads at the very best. Don't like spirited driving, so don't expect Ds2500 stopping power.

Well that's flipping obvious at £209 for F&R pads that's twice as much as I've spent on discs and pads!
