Cheapest option is probably halfrauds but TBH you should NEVER skimp on safety items like brakes. Hoses again could be a problem, but someone like rimmer brothers or brown and gammons could probably get you a set. Girling do a braieded set for the ZR (have a look at the PTP site as they sell them). Dont even think of contacting Girling direct. I have never come across a worse site or a worse company for customer relations (and I have heard the same thing from a few dealers).

I would offer to do them as I am not too far away from you but I am away this week-end.

But if i get a good brand of pads and not so good hoses wont that be ok?
Ill get better hoses when i can afford it
Why pay twice though

Mintex dont do mg only rover are they identical?
Believe they do...andy will know... he has mintex on the front of his 120, think they will be the same as the BRM or the 200VI rovers.

Yes and go for the best for both that you can afford. Ever hear the saying 'spoil the ship for a h'pence of tar'? Good hoses and bad pads or bad hoses and good pads, both are a bad idea. Get good hoses and good pads.
