Discs at Musica?
Pads at any PnP, Shoprite,..., in the female hygene section.
i think the goverment is issuing free at some schools these days

 ;D ;D

No idea actually.
I bought brakepads from our local spares shop(s).
Must also get discs soon, but will prob. go OEM, as i don't need higher performance brakes.

lol, maybe ill just use some cardboard cutouts like our taxi friends, im sure thats all an xt needs... the problem with oem is the 2 hour trek to the dealership to order as they wont order without payment, then 2 hours back and another 2 hours there to collect and 2 hours back....

How about email and EFT if you work via the dealer? And then get Postnet to pick it up.

Otherwise, I'm on Ferodo fronts from Autozone.

Check on Powerbrake.co.za.
They have slotted disks and Bendix pads with prices on the site.
Get prices from the dealers as well to compare.

I went through this very frustrating exercise about a year ago. Midas and Autozone look in their "bibles" from Ferrodo and ATE, etc. The part numbers given there are incorrect, trust me! The only place that could help me, was a small company in Kempton Park, called Graaff Brakes. They could supply correct pads and disks, but I ended up not replacing my disks, as they just needed a light skim to render them brand new again. These guys know their story, as brakes is their business! Even checked my disks for cracks...

I did front disks and pads in May this year. OEM from dealers was around R5700 excl fitting. Powerbrake was a little cheaper if I recall correctly, but Pyro doesn't have experience with them so advised against those.
