    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.

    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.

    Brembo ones are painted black on the bell if I remember correctly?
