this might sound like a stupid question but this is the first time that i would have bought new brake pads. on the EBC site they have standard pads for the ZR priced at around £17 i think.
is this for one or for the pair?
it seems cheap for the pair. i dont wanna spend a bomb on brake pads if i can get the standards i will

thanks!!

The price is for a axle set, so it will be 4 pads. Also I saw you tried to order, did you have problems with Paypal, or are you still undecided.

Regards

same here 23k miles and still on original brake pads, should they be replaced or not and they sometimes screetch

somethign else my front discs are warped slighty, so much that when the car is jacked up and the wheel is off, every turn it sticks, and i need to use a bar to turn it round, so are these needing replaced too?

Brake pads need to be changed depending on how they are used, quite easy to get 30k out of a set of pads, and some people get through a set in 6k. It all depends where the majority of your driving is done, and how you drive.

When they're gettin low do they screech all the time? Cos mine screech pretty bad but only when they're cold for the 1st few brake presses.
