156 JTD Brakes


Just wondering if i can have some advice on replacing discs and pads all round on my 156 2.4 JTD, no problem with fitting just wondering what manufacturer.

I am only doing about 6k a year in the car due to a company car so i don`t want upgraded stoppers etc, have seen a matched set of Mintex Discs and pads for £139.00 from a supplier on e bay

Any thoughts

Well I use the Mintex ones and I'm very happy with them.

Re: 156 JTD Brakes

Go to your local Motor Factor (yellow pages)

You can get Lockheed or Brembo discs off the shelf and I would recommend Delphi pads. Don't go for cheap pads.

The Mintex deal on fleabay is a great one, I'd give the brand an average rating and would prefer AP Lockheed for standard kit but the price just couldn't be matched and for 6K a year they last quite a while.
