    Best place to try for discs and pads is actually the Stealers. Ask for a Disc and Pad Set (Installation Kit) should cost £60 - £70 all in for front and similar price for rear. All GM Originals. It is about the only thing you can get at the stealers for a decent price. If you don't ask for the SET you will get quoted for individual items and that is £££.

    There is a thread on here with the part numbers you need to ask for too.

    never had a problem with the vx ones, always found mintex very hard and wore the disks out quickly plus give off huge dust!
