    time for new brakes

    It's time for some new brakes for the GSI. I've been in to price up pads and discs all round at the local Vaux.
    Front discs £156
    pads £56.50
    rear discs £98.50
    pads £37.20

    So £348.20 total



    But from TMS
    Front discs £78.69
    pads £19.74
    rear discs £28
    pads £17.44

    total £143.87

    Much more of a better price. Although they are Ferrodo pads, and the last ones i had, and have still got in, rattle and it's very annoying.


    However, i'm thinking of goin for some EBC/Black Diamond discs/pads. What do people seem to find are the best ones, and are they worth the money? And where is the best place to get them from?
