E90 330D - Front Discs Scored, New Discs or Just Pads?

Hi All,

Just wondering whether new pads would be ruined by scored discs or the new pads will just flatten the surface of the disc over time.

The pads will shape to the discs before the discs to the pads. They donít look too bad to me. As long as they are above minimum thickness Iíd run them again.

Looking again they do look quite worn. Disregard my last post. Replace them and the pads.

Those discs look to have quite a lip on them. But the only way to be certain is to measure the thickness.

Thanks for all the replies, looks like it's best to get a new set of discs. I was doing some research and I was surprised that drilled and grooved are quite noisy and most prefer the standard design, on top of that it's not really the disc that contributes much to the stopping power, it's best to focus on better pads. That's the gist I got from my research anyway.

So what's some descent discs? And what pads would people recommend?

I've always gone with brembo discs and pads on any car i've owned. Usually get a decent discount on them at euro car parts as well

Having had both Pagid & Brembo discs on the 35i I found both makes ended up giving me steering wheel vibration under braking after a while. Am currently running ATE discs which were fitted August 2019 with no issues & would definitely buy ATE again over Pagid or Brembo. Although I suspect it was the Redstuff pads that most likely ruined the previous discs.

Another one for ATE. Never had an issue with Brembo tbf but personally avoid Pagid at all cost.

Yeah, I'd get discs & pads in your situation, if the discs were not scored and less worn just pads is fine.

My ATE discs have been great, so would recommend these.

For an upgrade on pads you could look at PFC Z rated, EBC yellow stuff, Pagid RSL 1 etc

Whilst you're doing the brakes, maybe do the calliper slider pins and boots too (ATE) - they don't cost much.
