Hi All!

Does anybody know who makes thandard relacement discs which you buy from dealers?

Its just that I'm very chuffed as I've just opened my parcel containing my new discs and pads from GSF!

I have BREMBO discs that were flipping cheap!!!!However I did order Textar pads and they've sent PAGID!!!! I seem to remember PAGID are very good indeed?Ive been out of the motor trade for about 10 years though and my memory needs kicking into touch a bit re the quality of brand of the pads!

Did I say I was pleased with the Brembos though? :rofl:

I'm No Longer Here :(

Knows where Volvo is from

I think ATE is a vendor, at least the guys at the dealer say so.

I had Brembos which I liked. I had crossdrilled and grooved Tar-ox disks which I loathed, I had to throw them away after 2000 kilometres.

Now I have ATE which works fine. However, Tar-ox pads squeal with stock disks and Volvo pads squeal too, with Tar-ox disks. When properly paired, they are silent...
