Hello and welcome, I'm from Hampshire too. What sort of mileage has it done to warrant disc replacement?

Well known bidding site has a few listings, genuine part and not £1700, but unsure of what you would consider a good price and does £1700 include rear discs, also intrigued on mileage if they need replacing too?! 😄

Euro car parts

Typically have a 50% off offer every few months and they are about half Lexus price anyway. 

I have used Pagid discs and pads on the ISF which are slightly lower price than OEM brembo from them. Much better brake feel but they are noisier and duster. 

Enjoy!

Euro Cars don't stock back parts for the RCF. 

@B1RMAOn my last service in March I was told that I'll need new front pads and disk on my next service. My mileage is currently 27K.

So the massive quote you had was for pads and discs including fitting? Its normally labour costs that ramp brake pricing right up as they charge a fixed labour cost to them although it only takes a short amount of time.

What was the actual cost of the parts? Do you not know anyone who could fit them for you?

That seems a bit low mileage wise to have worn out the discs, my last car an AMG with 600+ bhp and being a bit of a heavy motor lasted in excess of 50K so maybe they use a very soft metal on the RCF. Considering how big they are too I'm very surprised at them needing replacement at half the mileage of my last car.

Whilst in he local Toyota garage to look at the new Supra, I asked the service guy if they would be able to source and fit OEM RC-F brakes. He said he would get back to me, but I heard nothing. I certainly do not fancy paying Lexus dealer rates when the time comes so am following this thread as it evolves. It will be a while, as I'm currently on 32000 miles and about 50% wear on discs and pads.

I'd agree, I had 30K out of my pads and the MOT/ service I had a few months prior, only mentioned the pads as an advisory and said the discs were still healthy.

The report said the discs thickness was 32.7mm and pads had 5mm remaining. Apparently the minimum for the discs is 31mm so they recommend changing pads and discs next service/10k miles. I've only done 2.5K since so don't think I'll get them replaced at the next service in March.

Pads need changing before 2mm before they hit the sensor. I was unaware of the disc limit but to be honest didn't look it up as mine weren't mentioned. Be interested to know where you source your discs in the end for future reference 😄

That is extremely odd. They stock ISF and GSF, why not RCF?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
