    I just bought these too, fitting them this weekend, was going to get mintex discs and pads but they are £40 more, and they seem to be mintex pads on these ones anyway. Ill see how I go. Plus it means I can get the dog matt this month too without spending too much more.

    I couldnt resist at £60 for front disca and pads, had it confirmed the pads are mintex and the discs from Brit Part, so a very cheap package and hopefully better than the standard stuff from Land Rover, the pads should see to that.

    I'll be fitting EBC disks and pads to our FL when they go. The braking system on this car is shocking. Who the hell thought drums at the back would be a good idea? :crazy:

    with 140 bhp and a freelander you need a parachute and good life insurance, never mind the brakes

    You rekon? 140BHP doesn't propel that lump forwards very quickly.

    At least 197bhp. I'm around 155bhp & it's still slower than a week in jail, though much better than standard.
