United-Kingdom parts suppliers in uk for genuine oem parts

Hello folks first post here, apologies but on several other car forums, hoping to post more in the future.

Long story short where in the uk sells genuine mini parts mail order if nowhere what is the best brand of pads and discs?

We have a 2012 passat, a 2008 Mini cooper D and a 944 turbo.

Anyone online, except bmminiparts, seems to quote at least full retail (and sometimes more), so it can be cheapest to go to your local dealer if they give a discount!

thanks for the responses folks.

Our local dealer is quoting about 160 all in for pads, discs, sensors and a pair of rear roll bar bushes.

Car parts 4 less is 95 for the same stuff and Euro parts 100 (both inc discounts).

This means going away from genuine but makes better financial sense the question is which brand?

Pagid, Bosch, Textar or Eicher.

I would normally fit Pagid but does anyone know who makes them for Mini???
