    How can I find out the manufacturer of brake discs for a VW golf?

    I was told by my dealership upon my last service that I need to replace my rear brake discs within the next few months and time's ticking down on this. The quote from VW is 259 but I figure I could save a lot of money by getting this done elsewhere IF I can figure out what the OEM brake discs are for my car model?

    Only problem is, searching on VW Golf 2013 Brake Discs and all other variants is giving me no information at all. Lots of sellers on ebay offering GENUINE OEM DISCS but the actual identity of said discs appears to be some form of guarded secret. Does anyone know how I can find this info?

    The car's a 2013 Golf 1.4 TSI.

    Why do you want OEM discs, they're not exactly renowned for their quality/longevity?

    Personally I will not fit Jurid after some of their pads tried to kill me or Brembo as the only other discs I have seen rust so badly were Tarox, also Italian. TRW are a Tier 1 supplier to most of the worlds car manufacturers (I have been to some of their German plants, one where they make Bentley brake systems) I fit Pagid all day long and have done for decades without a single warranty problem and Porsche dropped Textar years ago over quality issues.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
