    Where to buy R33 GTR Discs + pads???

    I know this sounds a little silly, but not having had to buy anything other than standard off the shelf stuff before, I just need to know any good places. I rang our local partco in the hope I may be able to ninja them through on the works account, but at nearly 90 per disc and 120 for the pads, I just thought it would be worth double checking things. Only after a pair of front discs and pads, for the R33 GTR brakes that are on 180sx.

    Cheers

    I have the R32 GTR setup and for 120 delivered I went for the better Ferodo DS2500s rather than oem pads. I think Apex list them cheaper for the R33 Apex Performance Parts Ltd | Nissan 200SX parts specialists | Innovate Motorsport Dealers .

    For general prices on discs and pads for an GTR brake setup try Rising Sun (Welcome to Rising Sun Performance) they also deal in GTR oem parts although not all the stuff is on the site. Their number is 01962773729 but they're a workshop too so may not be able to answer the phone all the time. Will give you a better idea of prices.

    EBC Brake Pads

    R32GTR front brakes are totally different to R33 gear.

    Yup it was just to highlight thet the DS2500 pads seem to be cheaper for the R33 GTR(109) as opposed to 115 for the R32 GTR on Apex. As for oem discs Rising Sun should be able to provide a comparison price to what Wills been quoted, hopefully cheaper as they are a well known trader on GTROC.

    all skyline tuners such as abbey motorsports, rk tuning, rb motorsport should be able to get you oem stuff right through to ferodo ds2500 to full on big brake conversions

    Thank you, thank you, and thank you

    I am pretty weak at interneting, and knew the fountain of knowledge that is driftworks would save me hours of trawling through forums I didn't know.

    Ahh, you know R32GTR pads are the same as S14/Z32?

    Yup I'm aware of that, hence why I mentioned that the R32 GTR DS2500 are 117 (actually listed as S14/R33 GTST pads on the link) from Apex happen to be more expensive than the R33 GTR DS2500 which are 109.
