    The front discs on my W203 320 are very worn and although the pads are in good order I will replace both. The rear pads are worn as well although the disc is OK with hardly any scoring or wear.

    Looking on Eurocarparts today there is a 30% discount on brake parts (not including wear sensors.

    I can get a pair of Pagid front discs and pads, rear pads and 2 wear sensors delivered for £128.20 Any thoughts or negative comments about Pagid? I believe they are OEM for many marques.

    They have Eicher (cheaper) and Textar (more expensive) but am unsure of any differences in quality or performance etc and would appreciate any honest experiences and views on the merits or otherwise of these products.

    Thanks

    Nothing wrong with Pagid at all, use them all the time, my CLK has Pagid pro pads all round as does the Audi A8 and thats stopping over 400 bhp, great pad very little dust and no squeal. I would not hesitate to fit a Pagid pad and disc set, the only reason I don't use their discs is they don't do groooved and drilled:thumb:

    Thanks for the reassurance, it seems a very good deal at 30% off!!:thumb:

    I am not interested in having a grooved or drilled set as I really do not know of any benefit to normal driving, I thought they just made more noise and wore your pads out quicker????:dk:

    They don't make more noise but they do wear pads quicker as the grooves are designed to scrape the face of the pad ensuring a fresh clean surface is always available for braking and are more suited to hard driving. For normal use the Pagid set will be more than adequate.

    I am sure Pagid etc are fine. Discs and Pads replacement are on an MB fixed price menu, £320 for mine, the parts alone were £180ish, so I had MB do mine. New sender units, and an MB invoice for the history file. Plus the SBC unit on mine is a complication.
    Check with your MB dealer, you may be surprised.
