Firstly apologies cos i know for a fact this will be somewhere just not found it.

My front brake pads are needing replaced on my 105 MK2.

I would have prob gone for greens tuff but since there has been a couple or posts around saying that they fall apart im not to keen naturally.

I notice alot of you guys suggesting or are using mintex pads. Are these my best option also bearing in mind my disks are the standard ones will i need to replace these at the same time?

Relitively simple question i would imagine for some of you guys im just no sure lol too many choices ha ha :trampoli:

Cheers in advance.

If the pads are down to the metal the discs could well be fooked..Or it's just the pad low warning indicator..

I paid around a tenner for mine that was trade still running the ebc discs thou :)
