    Car had a MOT and free health check at MB yesterday which it passed with no issues. I thought they might mention the brakes on the health check, only note was front pads were worn 50%.

    The discs dont look too good. Do MB discs tend to rust fast? Anything need to be done or just leave them till the pads need replacing and change the discs then?

    The discs have a min thickness than can be measured. Your discs look perfect. Rule of thumb is two sets of pads per one set of discs.
