New Discs & Pads needed - Brembo?

Recommended Posts

Charles Hurst Nissan have advised that I need new discs & pads all round. In fact they also advised me the same thing almost a year ago, but following a second opinion, an independent mechanic said they had about a year left. Now the brake pedal is pulsing while braking and they're saying the discs are warped. It seems like now is the time to get the work done... Naturally Charles Hurst are looking to charge a seemingly outrageous amount to source and fit these, and there's no chance I'll be paying that.

I'm inclined to go for the like-for-like stock option (i.e. Brembo), unless someone here advises strongly against it? The car is used for regular road driving / occasional fast road driving.

It looks like I can get the four Brembo discs from EuroParts for £230.98 right now as there seems to be a 50% discount code (SALE90), which seems like a pretty great price?

As for the pads, I'm getting two different options for both front and rear which are different shapes (see links below). Any tips on which way to go here? (I've a 2007 model)

Around £300 for a full set of Brembo discs and pads sounds about right.

 

They're perfectly fine for daily road driving but struggle if you give them any real abuse (e.g. track days).

Entirely up to you really whether you're happy with their performance or want to spend the extra to upgrade to something like Stoptech, DBA, hawk etc.

Yes, mine currently has Brembo callipers, discs and possibly pads. I'm inclined to fit Brembo brand replacement discs and pads as, bar the stereo, I have kept the the car stock and fitted genuine Nissan / NISMO parts where possible. That is unless for similar money an alternative set of discs and pads would give a significant improvement in performance..?

 

Not sure what the difference between the two shapes of pads are though on the links above?

Looking at the 'view detail' section it seems as though two of the sets (the square shape) are for a Brembo brake system, whereas the other two (longer/curved shape) are for Sumitomo & Akebono systems.

Presumably I need the ones for a Brembo system.

Thread revival.

After 60k and 14 years my original discs need replacing.....I know I should drive it harder :lol:

Anyway just checking that the 4 part numbers above were the right ones if anyone can confirm?

Yeah, that's what I went for. These are the proper stock parts.

 

Just note that you need 4 discs, but only 2 (sets of) pads. I initially ordered 4 sets of pads not realising a set covers both driver-side and off-side so had to cancel and reorder.

When I ordered mine from EuroCarParts there was a sale on. Got the lot for £284.47. What that guy's selling costs nearly double that with no guarantee. I'd pass...

Cheers for the replies.

Missed out on the 50% off at Eurocarparts by days:surrender:.

Ordered the Brembos from Carparts4less with a WEEKEND 17 code for £326.

I could probably wait and save £40 from Eurocarparts when the 50% offer is back but every day that goes by without the zed is depressing and I just want them ASAP :lol:
