Its time to replace my discs and pads on my 200t

Now my local dealer quoted £850. I asked for a breakdown and about £240 is parts and the rest is labour.

I figured an independent mechanic is going to be cheaper and may give me some room to update the brakes.

When I spoke to parts they sai for motorway driving it is a good idea but wouldn't comment further.

Lexus HQ told me that they use textar pads (I think that's what they are called) and from reading reviews they seem good.

Question is should I stay with stock or upgrade rotors to slots and pads to ceramics? Or will there be issues with legality and insurance? Or simply a waste of time for mixed driving, town, motorway l, a and b roads.

 

Thanks

Do you know why you were asked to changed your discs as well? normally they don't need to be changed at the same time, unless something in the NX forces you to replace it.

Unless you intend using the car on track days I would say stick with original parts as specified by the designers

I agree. Does your driving style justify going above and beyond the proven and tested specs? Are you not happy with the performance of the standard brakes?

umm no, just thought if I was going to the trouble of replacing everything then it may be an opportunity to upgrade
