    The discs themselves?

    Vx dealer will sell a disc and pad kit for £65. The pads are the aftermarket ones, the OEM ones are much better, but even buying them additionally will cost less than just buying the discs by themselves!!

    Ask Vx for the brake and disc kit - £65 + VAT, and around £30 for the OEM pads which make a big difference. For your car, 2.0T, the OEM pads are Ferodo - so good stuff.

    But, as D said above, the Vx standard pads for the 2.0T are Ferodo - I would say that was worth the extra £15 over the Takischitt replacement ones from the factors
