ok all im looking at these brake discs and pads on ebay..
Thing is the size he lists is in inches not mm..Can someone confirm that these will fit..
Ive been trying to contact him through the usual channels but with no luck as hes not responding to mail..so i cant get the size or shipping cost..
Any idea on shipping costs also for said items..
Thanks in advance..
they do look rather nice
10.25 " = 260.35 mm
9.875" = 250.825 mm
I think you can probably round these off to 260 &250 mm
Hope this helps.
You will have to pay import tax on these, be careful it will cost you another £20 or so. I got caught out like this. :wink:
thing is i thought all rotors/discs were the same size for the v6 ..257mm on the front and 251 on the rear..
the imperial size dont seem right to me..
im still waiting on the seller to get back in contact over the shipping costs as well..
if he's not responding to you asking about buying them why bother buying off him??
Good point rob, but as im in no hurry to get /fit new brakes until a week or so before the mot, im just trying to source the best i can afford at the mo, the seller states that he sells worldwide but no responce from him so it may be his loss not mine and a mark against him for future sales from fellow members for his products… I am giving him every opportunity to respond and make a sale...heres hoping eh!!
Shipping and taxes will kill it.
All discs are the same regardless of engine size (on UK models at least).
question still remains though do the us spec mx3 v6 had different disc sizes to uk spec ones..
is it worth pursuing these?
I bought these, like tony the tiger says… thhheeerrreeee gggrrreeeeeaaattt.
Thanks for the link Mechanic, seem a very good price to me, may have to pamper the wife a little more to get those..lol..
Right quick update of the original post about aceperformance1999 he does no ship worldwide, i recieved a message eventually from him stating this.
Thats a shame really as in his listing he clearly said he does…
One to avoid i think...
Report this guy to ebay for an inaccurate listing, if he doesn't want to sell to us then he shouldn't say he will :evil:
already in the process of dealing with that mate but ive not had to much luck with it to be honest seems ebay dont give a hoots..well you get the impression..
Hello all, right my new disc's and pads have turned up yesterday, (thank god), not a prob for me to fit really just have one small question for the techies…lol..
on the front calipers the piston just pushes back in...YES/NO
and on the rears they screw back in YES/NO
thanks in advance
You are correct the front pushes in, and the rears screw in clockwise.
Some times pays to draw some fluid from the brake resivoir other wise it overflows. :D
Mechanic will i need some sort of special tool to wind the rears back in as it says in my manual mate or is there a cheat way lol…
fronts are push in
rears are wined in
there is a special tool but some times you can wined them back in usweing the edge of a screwdriver
yes to both man dont try "force" the rear they twist back nice and easily
and the piston wind back tool is only €20
