  1. Apologies if this is already well discussed somewhere... I did search, but didn't turn up much. Hi All, brand new member of the Mk7.5 R club here 👋 (Estate). I need to replace my brake discs and pads soonish and I am looking for up-to-date recommendations (road use only). I've seen mixed reviews on the prevalent aftermarket names you see kicking about, MTEC, TORAX, etc... and the options are overwhelming. My car is already modified and has non-OE discs, and I would assume pads. The discs are a c hook style with black centers and I'm struggling to pinpoint the brand without getting the wheels off and looking for branding. I just haven't had the time (or the weather) to jack the car up and take a look. I have considered just replacing with OE parts, as I'm sure they'd be plenty good enough. But the car is making more power, and the brakes on there at the mo do seem pretty good. It's been a while since I've dabbled in performance brakes, and generally feeling a bit clueless as to what is considered good these days, especially for these cars. Ideally the setup would lean towards budget, without sacrificing the performance too much. Please let me know what you recommend! 🤓
  2. Hi Guys, Looking to get some black coated discs from MTEC but they cant confirm when they have stock of this coating (but I cannot wait long). I cant find other discs with coating for the same cost. £270 for c-hook front and rear. Has anybody has any success just painting the non coated disc? Ive heard Hammerite could work, but if it wont last long then not very good. Any help is great Cheers
  3. Folks, My OE rear discs and tarox strada pads are goosed and will be replaced soon. I'm keen to get aftermarket discs that have a coating to avoid the horrendous rusty hub issue but the question is; do I really need to spend a lot of money? If I were to get some Vagbremtechnic discs and more tarox strada pads I'm looking at north of £300. If I were to get basic coated EBC discs and yellowstuff pads I'm looking at £130 all in. For info, the car is tracked a couple of times a year and I have an AP BBK up front. What would you guys do? TIA
  4. been looking at changing my front discs and as much as id love a BBK, i have no intention of going near a track so dont really think i need to splash out £1600-£1800 at least. ive been thinking of getting a set of clubsport discs but browsed the mtec website and found these. https://www.mtecbrakes.com/2-piece-brake-discs/seat-leon-345mm-front-discs-mtec7009-349-99/seat-leon-345mm-front-discs-mtec7009.html these are for a leon or earlier s3/r and after looking at dimension on replacement discs for those earlier cars (on the nitrac wwebsite) from what i can make out all the dimensions are the same as our standard discs except they are 345mm rather than 340mm. does anyone know if these would fit straight on to an R? TIA Sam
  5. Hi Guys, I know this is a heavily debated topic, but I am thinking of upgrading my brake pads from the stocks... From what I have seen the two options I am deciding between are the Ferodo DS2500 and the EBC Yellow stuff? Has anyone tried both these pads and could offer any advice? Any other options people could recommend? Cheers! (I am running drilled discs by the way, so aggressive pads should not be a problem)

  7. Evening all. I'm a little bit stuck on something that I hope someone can help me out on. Here's the thing, I really like the look of this kit: http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-Golf_V--2.0T/ES7370/ I really don't like the price though! So I decided to build my own kit. I've got the calipers, I've found the pads, fittings and lines I'll need but I'm not sure I've got a set of discs. I was thinking of using these as they're virtually the same dimensions as the ones in the Stage 5 kit: http://www.mtecbrakes.com/brake-discs/mercedes/m-class-1998/ml63-w164-10-06-amg.html I'm aware that the centre bore is slightly different but the stud pattern should match up and the thickness and offset of the disc should be OK, but can anyone confirm that for me?
