Mintex M171 pads,new fluid,discs and shoes are all you need.

Them 360 brakes are good if maintained.

Probably original shoes,pads,discs etc on yours with it having such low mileage.

If you like wasting money,yeah.

I ran mine with Delphi discs and 171s.Entered many a control with discs glowing but no fade.

It's your money like but they wouldn't be for me.

Fitted the springs yet?

I wonder how many 300's have entered controls with the discs glowing.

I wonder how many of the people who complain about 300 brakes have done similar :lol: :lol: :lol: (not a dig Liam, more at the amount of people who complain about 300 brakes on here ;))
