    My C32 was in need of some new pads and the discs are also quite worn.

    Interestingly the prices from the Main dealer were very good!
    Pair of front drilled disks C32 specific £104+vat pads £50, wires £5 each.

    MUCH cheaper than I was expecting and also cheaper than aftermarket.

    I would be interested if anyone else is running C32 and has changed discs and pads. Do the stock discs last well?

    I could upgrade to something like Nitrac disc, which are supposed to last longer

    Mainly Mercedes
    They have recently come down from about £79 per disc. A welcome surprise the last time I ordered some for a customer!!

    An unusual move too, as AMG prices are notoriously ludicrous.

    I can't comment on other makes, as I have never used them, but my C32 is on it's second set of discs, changed at approx 35,000 miles. TBH, the Nordschliefe finished off the original set...

    Gone with the standard, braking seems pretty good.
    Thanks for the input

    Hi
    Wish they would lower the price of the C43 AMG Discs £200+ each disc :(
