hi guys got a quote from the local auto factor for 90 quid for brand new front discs because mine are slightly warped but ive come across a few 2nd hand sets for cheaper. would i be as well off going the full whack for new ones?

you got there before me mike. no reason not to put good secondhand ones in. i got secondhand ones few years ago and they were in very good condition and a fraction of the new price. they were got from a reputable breaker so if they were fecked then they were going back.

Put it this way, If it was condoms you were buying would you ask for 2nd hand or new????? They are both a safety feature after all... :D
