Discs and pads. Opinions?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRAKE-DISC-BRAKE-PADS-MINTEX-FRONT-REAR-FOR-HONDA-CIVIC-1-6-1-8i-VTEC-2012-JTM/332507241602?fits=Model%3ACivic%7CPlat_Gen%3AMK+IX &hash=item4d6af9dc82:m:m-vsgNm9iNib9oZQQOJqkkQ

What's everyone's take on these? I think my car will need new brake discs for it's next MOT and it's running cheap pads...so I'm assuming these will be a step-up?

It says only for Japanese models, I'm unsure what difference that makes though.

Just fitted a set of pagid pads to the 9th Gen they have a very nice feel under pedal no squealing and dust is very minimal, compared to cheaper sets Ive fitted previously.

Eurocarparts are doing a full set of Pagid front and rear Discs with pads for 187.16 if you use the code MID40 at the checkout. Don't know if that's good or bad.

I think the backs on mine are pagid but the fronts are some cheap ***** that seem to enjoy squealing like pigs in a field with David Cameron.

it all depends on driving style and types of roads
we have big hills wghere i live so grooved/vented discs do have some benifit over standard type

but you can have similar effect buy fitting decent quality pads

id say there not a bad price but mintex oem approved
that sounds slightly strange wording
i recongnise the user name and im sure ive had stuff from them
the padgids someone else has quoted are as good or better than most for road use
or if you fancy cross drilled and grooved m-tecs are good value

For the last couple of year with the 8G I fitted cheap and it seemed to go through a set of rears every year? odd that it's normally the front that go first. Must have had binding calipers or something. Plus when I eventually started using cheap pads as the car wasn't worth much, the amount of black crap that stuck to the alloys was horrendous.

I need to get some pads. Anyone know which the oem ones are. I want to avoid them due to the squealing they make.
Eurocarparts have pagoda front and rear but only brembo at the front. Very similarly priced.

Does anybody know who makes the honda pads? I know when I did my brake pads on my 2012 honda they had a popular pad manufactures name on them, but have forgotten which it was.
Can get honda OEM for my 2015 tourer SR for a staggering 95 front and rear, I do find the OEM pads create a lot of dust quickly and make my black alloys look horrid.
