The guy at the motor factors told me VW use Mintex. I'd expect better from them. They didn't have Mintex in stock and given the lockdown was just about to start (I bought them a few weeks ago) I took the ones he had. I'd not heard of them, Modero, we'll see how they last. Can't be any worseI believe VW use bog standard Mintex or Pagis discs which are of average quality. Worth upgrading to Brembo, Bosch or ATE which will be high carbon steel and shouldn't corrode as quickly.
I once got 80k out of 4 discs on a Merc CLK but the steel then was obviously higher quality than some of the rubbish around today.
Must get round doing my rear pads and discs on our Passat once my OBDeleven device finally arrives!
Glad to hear you got it all sorted.
I hadn't driven it for a few months, it was horrific. Undrivable really.
The discs were absolutely goosed, but the pads had very little wear. So imho miss matched and poor quality.
I quite like Pagid, and never had issues like this. Well apart from lease cars which were always driven like I stole them
