Expensive considering you can get these which I would imagine are better.

MTEC Brakes, Performance Brake Discs, Sport Brake Discs

I got the black edition drilled and grooved for the 156 with Mintex pads for 200 euro del to the house.

Nice alright, I dont need performance discs though as our lass uses the 156 for work and creche drops. 25 quid a corner will do me thanks. Besides whatever I can save on 156 bits I can then spend on 33 bits

what year is your car?

does it have solid or vented front discs?

does it have the 251mm or 274mm rear discs?

the spring type pads are for 251mm & the non-spring pads are for 274mm discs, a fact the seller doesn't seem to know about.

Yeah I didn't know there were two different types either, after I bought them he contacted me to clarify which I had. Also he has 8 pages of 156 models to choose from! So he seems pretty thourough tbh.

It annoys me when these people advertise their goods, on the "WORLD" wide web.
Then restrict postage, to a small island in the middle of nowhere...
