Gettting ready to do a full front brake job on the Benz for the first time (I have let the shop do it in the past).

Fastlane has several choices for pads and discs. Anyone have any experience in this area?

I bought the OEM Textar pads for my car. for discs, I have no idea, I don't need them yet...

My car had the Jurid pads before. I like the Textar ones.

I recommend you go with Pagid. I beleive they are OEM. I ordered Pagid through Parts Shop here and they worked excellent with no squeal or noise. If you are getting rotors buy they at Parts Shop and you cant go wrong.

We've had problems at the shop with Jurid pads being too thick for the application. I would strongly recommend original Ate pads and rotors.
