    Default New brake discs

    Time for some new front brake discs, but im not sure what to buy?

    Ive been offered standard ones for £50 or brembo ones for £65 (pair)

    Are the brembo ones worth the extra?

    Can't really help much here, other than there's no way you'll get pukka Brembo discs for £65. Let me know if you can (with a link) cos I'll buy every one they've got.

    I doubt that, you would have been better off getting the ebc drilled and grooved if you wanted to replace with better kit.
    If brembo make them to oe spec, they wont waste money making them any better. They will be oe discs with a brand name on the box im afraid.
