    Default Drilled and grooved discs

    Hi all,

    i need a new set of front discs and pads, was thinking of fitting some drilled and grooved discs .

    i only do about 5-6 miles a day and the car rarly sees the motorway, so i was wondering if i would feel much benerfit in spending the extra money on drilled and grooved.

    mintex discs and pads £62

    drilled and grooved discs and mintex pads £85

    or should i just not be so tight and just pay the £85, they do look the nuts after all .

    cheers.

    Just get them drilled, the grooves only look nice, they won't help you on the road. They will eat your pads faster and make alot of noise though.

    I was looking at drilled, but heard loads of stories of them cracking.

    Unless the holes are too close together it should not be an issue on decent size discs.
