Now I have no idea how different they are from the MK2 discs and pads, but I paid less than £70 for a set of pads and two discs from my local factor in January. I fitted them in an hour.
My local Citroen main dealer will supply and fit genuine front discs and pads for £220 all inclusive.

The "cheapie" discs I put on a Xantia 4 years ago have now done 75, 000. Brake parts are one of those odd items where quality is not always dictated by price. It does pay to do a bit of research on the Internet first.

yep agree theres just so much counterfit stuff out there now , and all prices ,,dosent mean low price and inferieor goods just when it comes to brakes and my familys safety for the sake of a few pounds , i played it safe but realize i could gone the ebay route , its one them things hopefully when i stamp on them in an emergency they will pull up in a shorter distance ,might not but you pays your money takes your chance.

I told my mother: "When I grow up, I want to be a musician".
She said: "You can't have it both ways!"
There's a parallel in brakes (discs and pads) IMO. You either go for bite or longevity.
I put juratek discs on my mini and they are very good. Based in the uk they started out selling truck brake discs so they know what they're doing.
