Keep in mind that l am using Ebay Germany.
Searching for discs and pads. Got an advisory on the last TUV. Just checked a few one was in perfect English. The discs were reconditioned to 17.5mm. If that's not suitable l will make sure that you are happy. I checked the ones l am presently using from ATE 20 mm. They list the mindest dicke 18 mm.
Sounds like this guy has discs from scrap yards and machined them.
Cleaned them up and is now selling what could be product that is dangerous.

As it happens my ATE ones cost me 125€, 5 years ago only done about 18,000 miles and are worn out.
The pads are 50% worn. All stop - start in town driving. Will not be buying ATE again this lifetime.

The ATE ones sound expensive and for poor quality.

I've just fitted brand new front disks and pads. I bought Borg & Beck as they are a well known quality brand and the total bill was less than £40 at my local motor factors (they sell to the public as well as garages in the UK - is it the same in Germany ?).
I know they are heavy, but even with shipping you would be well under what you paid.
