    Default VX Brakes vs Mintex?

    Hi all,

    Need to change the discs + pads all round on a 1.8 03 Vectra. I've found a full setup made by Mintex on ebay for £110, same price as the Vx ones off Autovaux. My question is which should i go for?

    Thanks!

    Are they the ones where it shows grooved discs? If its the same advert I noticed the discs aren't Mintex ans it doesn't say anywhere on the ad that they are. Just make sure there what you think they are and you'll be fine.

    I presume they are mintex. Not the ones you had linked to, its this:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...d=p3286.c0.m14

    So i could either go for these or the Vx ones from Autovaux...what do you guys recommend?

    If you ask Autovaux for GM ones they will get you them. My fronts are Mintex and rear GM both from Autovaux.

    I've got mintex discs and pads all round and I think they're better than GM. There's a lot less brake dust with mintex, and i do have better stopping power because of em. I paid £120 for the whole lot from my local parts dealers, and i've got a 2.0T
