Hi,

Need some new rear pads, not the greates brakes on the planet but I think I'm going to go with organic ones.
Genuine ones at evans are £11, and ones by OBE and also Clarks are £6 .. is t worth paying the extra for genuine ones?, I realise Evans might not be the cheapest place, but there doesnt seem to be any genuine ones on amazon, what would others do/

Thanks

    Try superstar and use the code JULY25 before the end of the month, should work out cheaper than clarks etc, especially if going for organic.

    Superstar should be at least as good as the originals and loads cheaper

    Just to update, very pleased with the superstar pads, I went with organic, and I'm not sure of its because they are new or if the OE pads were not good, but they seem a good improvement, even if memory serves better than when the OE pads were brand new, especially due to the price of them and the speedy delivery.

    I'm marginally concerned about how long they will last, but they are cheap enough for that not to be a concern.
