Hi all

 

Looks like im going to need a new set of front disks and pads soon.  Im sure that this has been answered a thousand times before here, but I couldn't find anything recent.

 

Anyone got any recommendations/part numbers that I could look at.  Probably go to euro car parts since they seem to have a sale on. Which is unusual ;)

 

I'm not a boy racer so don't need race pads or anything.  Just whatever is standard these days.

 

Thanks

 

Rusty

If you aren't a racer then go for

Pagid pads and discs

Or ATE

Both of which are OEM brands for VW R32

Thanks for the reply.  Looking at the eurocar parts site, they have several options for both pads and discs for my reg.  Any idea which to go for?

 

Discs

104441238
104441248
104441508
 
Pads

101441138

For the discs, 345x32mm  with a height of 48mm . PCD is 112x5 with 14mm bolt holes and a centre bore of 66mm ( or is it 65.8mm ) Anyway , if they match those dimensions, they will fit. Next, go for coated ones. They are a bit more expensive but worth it. The uncoated ones rust for England . As for pads, I like Mintex 1144 but frankly as we R32 owners have brake  servos about the size of dustbins , I would just get a set from a reputable brand
