Loads actually.

Mainly because they were not using it when they pulled out in front of someone and smashed it....

I've got another one if you're worried. It's still a bit rude, though (obviously). ;)

I work with a BMW nutter...

He was quoted about 400 pads, supply only with discount... so he bought Pagid...



... For the same price as BMW sell them via their ebay store ::)

He wasn't impressed when I told him... even less so when the Pagid pads are still squeaking a thousand miles later ;D

That is shocking DG,so my friends best bet is to buy from a local factors and have them fitted by a local garage.Any recommendations as to make of pads Dean.

Are BMW brakes more difficult to work on? Disc brakes and pads generally are so simple, they are difficult to f**k up for even the lamest numpty. I blessed the day when drum brakes disappeared on my cars. :y

Agreed. But you know what they say about making something idiot-proof? ;)

Had a flashback to drum brakes recently when I had to overhaul my handbrake. ::)

No.  I replaced the front discs and pads on mine last year and it was no harder than any other vehicle.  :y

I found a set of Unipart front discs that were clearance on ebay for 19 and I forget where the pads came from but it would have been cheap ebay or ECP.  :y

I press the pedal and the car stops. Job jobbed!  :y  I await my ritual slagging!  ;D
