    Brake discs for 1.9 Tdi

    I've got a Golf Plus 1.9 TDI 2006 year
    I need to change the front & rear discs & get some new pads fitted too
    Are they 288 x 25mm front discs? I'm thinking that there's wear sensors on the pads?
    I see that 2 sizes are listed for the rear - would it be 253 x 10mm for the TDI?

    (Ill get the wheels off this week to confirm)
    What are the better brands to go for? Pagid, Mintex etc?

    288 front, 253 rear and yes the front left has a wear sensor. We only fit Pagid and we never get any issues.

    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.

    I have found Brembo discs to be very susceptible to corrosion on cars used lightly but their pads are excellent.

    The complete friction surface on my O/E discs due to light use.
    I remember competition mates using Brembo discs with many long breaks between races also exhibited the same issues.
    To be fair there wasn't a great choice in my time but I always used AP products and don't recall anyone coming back to me.
    Lots of choices nowadays but better??

    Funnily enough, AP Racing is now owned by Brembo. Anyway, it is the rear face of the disc that seems to suffer, now they coat the bells they don't look ugly so quickly any more.
