What brand of disc and pads?

Hi all.

I'm looking into buying some discs and pads for the front. But, wnat to pick your thoughts on what brand you prefer?

I have the choice of pagid, mintex or brembo. Is it worth the extra for brembo?

All decent choices those, used all of them in the past. Any should be more than sufficient for normal driving conditions.

Yeah, that's the impression I'm getting. I don't think it's worth splashing out the extra cash for brembo.

Pagid seems to be good value for money.

Not sure if it is too late or if this helps, but in another car I'm using Textar and I'm happy. The car had a sort of noise on bad roads, and textar pads are made with an extra sort of tape that fits them properly so the noise is gone.

Found out that the QQ does a sort of click on rear brakes from time to time I'm pretty sure the next one will be Textar.
