    Default Brake Discs

    The discs in my Vectra are fine for now, but with 34K on the clock, I suspect they will need changed soon. I could go for standard VX parts or cheaper non VX parts (which even the VX dealer was pushing over the originals) but I just wondered if there is another make that would offer better performance and yet not cost the earth?

    I go for Brembo as a make when funds allow, but in recent times I fitted Eicher to both my Saab and the wife's Golf V5 and find them amazing value.

    Mintex are also very good quality and on ebay you can get a set for the CDTi front and rear with pads for about £110

    Thanks, will have a look on flebay for the mintex set. £110 is a good price and I have a friendly grease monkey who would fit they for me for a very reasonable hourly rate.

    Go back to the VX dealership and ask what price the "pad and disc kit" is
    Even on the V6 CDTI it is only slightly more than the costs of the discs only

    On your 1.9 CDTI the front discs should last to the third set of pads, about 60K miles
    However, you will be lucky to get 40K miles out of the rears and just two sets of pads

    Mintex are more than a match for OEM in reality and quite possibly actually are OEM in another box

    Pad and disk kit is only about £65+vat from the dealer. I'm on 70k and still on the original front disks, changed rears last year though.

    Not likely...
    Front pads and front discs
    Rear pads and rear discs
    About £80 for each kit, ie £160 for both front and rear
