R56 Recommendations for replacements discs and pads?

Afternoon everyone

Need to replace front discs and pads this weekend, car is an R56 LCI Facelift Cooper S Automatic

Last time I changed brakes, on our old R53 Cooper, I seem to remember Mintex were recommended, so wondering if this is still valid or if another brand is now preferred?

Mintex are still well thought of but they have a lot of pad grades so choose carefully. I use EBC Red Stuff as they work well and have the lowest dust of any decent pad.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs

I am looking at the standard Mintex road pads and standard discs.

I've just put some Mtec discs and Mintex pads on the front of my MCS and they are amazing! I would recommend them to anyone.

Had a look at their website, seem very good and great value for money too, less than 100 for drilled discs with Mintex pads as they are currently running a 10% off promotion on their website.

Have ordered mine, will update this thread once I've fitted them and bedded in.
