Discs and pads advice.

Post by Frizz » Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:07 pm

I'm due new discs and pads on the front.
Which ones? From ecp
Brembo?
Do I need pads with the warning sensors?
There for a 2011 140 sport 2.0tdi bluemotion.
Cheers sorry if this has been asked before.
And which oil grade do I need?

Ok looking at disks and pads on my b7 140 tdi
What size are they? Looking at eurocarparts.
But unsure or dia and thickness.
Also do pads need the extra sensor?
Cheers for any advice.
