can anybody point me in the right direction of the cheapest place for replacement pads for the above? my lads' car but i said i'd ask around before he shells out the thick end of £500 notes. reckon they are due in about 1000 miles so i need to find some soon - damage the discs and he'll well outta pocket!:amazed:

Thx in advance!:blink1:

Hi VitBMW,

Don't know where you've tried so far, but you could try the shop related to this site, which is http://torquecars.potn.com

Power Supply can be found here www.psupply.co.uk
The marque club is Subaru Impreza Drivers Club and can be found here www.sidc.co.uk there is a list of places offering members discount, so given the expense if you could find a decent price it might be worth him joining for £35.
One that I've never used before is Performance Alloys who are here http://www.performancealloys.com/brembo_brake_systems.asp

Let me know how you get on because, I will probably need them at some point!

Good luck:cool:

The brembos are pretty expensive but they are good pads. Beware of the cheaper pads they are not as long lasting and not always as good at braking. There is a link to the POTN shop at the top right.
