Recommended Posts

the time has come for the service and after some nightmare material quotes from lexus on parts i've been scouring the net for brakes. Are the is300 brakes the same as the is200 as this is all i can fid that are in my price range, unless the group buy goes ahead looks like e-bay for me. lol

What are you looking to change? I need new discs soon and have found some from a few places all under £100. Pads of course are even less.

But maybe you want new calipers, hoses etc?

e-mailed a few companies and this seems to be the best deal back so far

"hi Jamie we have the front pads & discs on special this month @ £85.95 rear discs are £ 38.95 each &rear pads are 14.99 +vat + P&P"

sounds alright

You get what you pay for dude.

Just make sure they are reputable makes of discs and brakes.

No point skin-flinting on something as important as these things.

I've got mintex pads all round and standard disc's, not had no problems stopping as of yet. (I got my pads off of ebay)

I also believe that the MK1 Aristo has the same brakes as the IS200, which is a much bigger and heavier car so:

do you need to up-rate them ?

are you going for loads of power in the future ?

IMO I would get a good set of pads and put the rest of the money to another mod

Good advice.

The standard brakes are easily upto the job.
