I payed 115,- euro per disc for them ,bought via PKWteile.de / autodoc.de

So thats 100,- pounds on current rate.


Now hope the calipers will clear my 313 style 7,5j wheels without spacers...

Decent enough price for 2 piece premium brand :)

Lets hope your wheels clear ok, my 208 wheels do just!... but 264 require spacers, both in stock 18" sizes etc

Question: i will fit my m135i brakes soon ,how do you go about bedding in the new discs and pads?
reading so many different stories on the net,some do the 500mile easy driving ,some do the racing quick bedding in method.

Do you have a different way of doing this?

Discs ideally need 50-100 miles of gentle to medium usage, basically gentle heat cycles to temper the iron and while most discs now will take plenty of abuse from new it's always better to build it up over few cycles to prolong life and prevent cracks from thermal shocking them too soon.

Pads depends on brand etc but usually for road pads just doing the disc bedding above should see them bedded also, so basically use brakes but no extreme braking/heat until you have a few miles on them.
Track pads whole different thing and need abuse from the start usually to get the harder material transfered onto discs.
