That's just the thing. Will sells new parts as well. In every case of buying new parts from Will they have been good quality and lower prices than I could find anywhere else. With the sole exception of a "Lucas" rotor that was a piece of junk, but finding quality rotors these days is getting hard, apparently.

Are you looking for suggestions of where to buy or what brands? When it comes to brakes I prefer all Genuine, but have also found that aftermarket rotors and Genuine pads are a good combo.

x2 on Will for brakes. I ordered a brake kit from him with new pads and rotors. Was very pleased with the parts sent. As for hubs I went with some of Amazon from A1 Auto. I believe I paid $160 for a pair of front hubs with ABS sensors.

I was hoping to have suggestions on what brands work best or good value for money parts.

I put Hawk HPS brake pads and DBA rotors on my D2 and I'm pretty happy with the results. I like the feel of those pads.

I have done the EBC rotors and pads and am happy. Have used those on other cars as well with good results.

I have run the Akeebono pads at my mechanics recommendation on 3 different rovers and I love them.



Great tip on the speed bleeders. Might be my next purchase. I have to extend my flex brake lines again so a good time to do those.
