Thanks Stu but the problem seems to be that there are different discs, pads, calipers for different models. Some 3.0 TDI's even have different brakes from others of the same vintage.might be worth while scanning a few pages here on ebay!! might save some money!! and fitting discs and pads is not a hard job.
the only special tool you will need really is the torx socket to undo the caliper bolts.
Yes on my old BMW X5, I had EBC discs and green stuff pads. They were rubbish to be fair, the pads were quite a hard compound and had warped the discs within a few months.Anyone got experience of EBC? My only experience is on a motorbike using their HH brake pads which work very well the harder you use them but are naff when stone cold.
Doesn't instill confidence. Although, to be fair, looking on the EBC website it does say that Greenstuff pads are generally recommended for cars producing up to 200bhp and/or not 4WD.Yes on my old BMW X5, I had EBC discs and green stuff pads.

I then migrated to Mintex and they had better grip and no warping.
