I paid 13.50 for Eicher pads for the 3.2, 50% discount "flash" sale. Not actually got around to fitting them yet, but went for them as DTM and few others mentioned Padgid have gone down the crapper in terms of quality.

Suspected Brembo ones are just marketing BS in a different box, so went for Eicher. Will let you know when I actually get around to fitting them along with the discs.

Given the known excellent, trouble free TC pads are around the same, why piss about with a) Euroshite, b) their dubiously sourced shite, c) unknown shit.

Got to admit, these TC pads and discs on the car at the moment have been pretty good  ;)

Shame we don't have a TC dealership around here anymore and funny enough, because of that, I don't have a card anymore either  ::)  :P ;D

Right, where's my horse gone .........  ;D ;D

Speaking of TC, I paid 12 for two oil filters on TC on Monday. I thought they were a lot less than that on TC ?  :-\

Evans Halshaw around here baza  :(
They stopped doing trade club about 4 or 5 years ago but used to offer the trades, taxi companies and me something close to the same price.
I fell out with them a couple of years ago because they took the piss over something and spoke to me like a retard which believe me is not the way to get on with me  :-X
True to form, I wasn't very diplomatic and ever since then, its obvious when I walk through the door they think here's that t@at  i'm not welcome  ::)

The scunny dealership is about a 50 mile round trip plus bridge fares plus travel time so when the card run out, I left it  :(
