Discs and pads wanted for a 5g

Morning guys

Hope everyone is well. My brakes are now fried.. 3 of the discs are warped. Does anyone have any decent discs and pads for sale?

Regards

have you checked brakeparts.co.uk They have some decent brands and kits available for the rarer models or so I have found and they are brands like Ferodo & Bremtech.

rarely are discs warped.

I couldn't even warp a set of standard discs / pads on a track day.

What tends to happen is if you've been braking too much (read as driving too quickly) then the pad residue itself transfers itself to the disc, leading to spots of high friction, which lead to a very noticeable sharp judder related to the speed.

eventually, with prolonged light braking, the compound will rub off and it will return to normal.

for a road car, normal discs and pads will do - get them from euro car parts with a discount code, ebay etc... they arent much.

For the effort and down time (if 1 wheel is off and car is unusable, all might aswell be off) then do all 4 obviously, cost is not that high at all...

I am upgrading to the ATR setup. Coming off will be Bremtech grooved disks and CL RC5+ pads. 1 track day old plus about 150 road miles. Hopefully swapping everything over on Thursday so let me know if you are interested and ill take some pics. :thumbup:

@nickb - yes please bud send me a pm with the price
@scott560 - hmm interesting. I have had the car for 10 years and since then only changed front and rear pads once.
This problem is about 2 weeks old and when I brake I can feel as if the car hesitates. So if the pads are touching the disc you can feel the judder. Took it to my uncle who works at a garage and he put on the rollers and saw that 3 of the brakes were fluctuating on the dial. I will see how it goes for the next week or so and see if it clears up. The discs are old, so they may just be due for a change.
