I have just got some Texar front pads (I think thats the name) from AF (Paul there said they condsidered them good pads). Not fitted yet, might be going on at the weekend as I was going to check pad depth when swapping to winter alloys. Though it would be easier at the same time the wheels were off.

I got a set of TRW disks and pads from Advanced Factors. No issues and I have come to realise how worn my brakes really were. Brakes are MUCH more positive now! Bri

We have had a lot of issues, mainly brake judder & discs warp from non genuine pads. Same goes for the discs.
We fit quite a few sets & have only had one set of Gen pads/discs that had judder/warp.
We have seen a lot of non genuine which we have had to replace before they were worn out with warp problems.
I'm not saying all will do it, it just increases the chances.
Interestingly the runout on the discs were good, but the judder was there until renewed, then fine afterwards.

Had the judder through the pedal. Like braking / not braking and thought the pads were too hard. Brakes had little feel and felt poor compared to other vehicles I own.
It turned out that it was the rear discs and pads causing the problem. The disc were unmarked and the pads were relatively new. Visually there was nowt wrong with them. Changed them over and wow what a difference.
