    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.

    VitBMW, I've just seen an add for 25% off Brembo from Larkspeed. Their phone number is 0113 2643231 and the site is www.larkspeed.com . The add is in the current issue of Total Impreza.
