Found 20th Feb 2012
Just ordered some Mintex Brake Pads and found even without the 10% code they were much cheaper than ebay. Delivery is free over £50 and with the Mintex pads you get a free Mintex Lubricant,similar to Copper Grease
I paid £42.43 and that is including £4,35 delivery for front and rear pads!!
Ebay was £49.99.
7% QUIDCO
expires 29 Feb
You need to go through Quidco...

My Quidco has tracked already, £2,29.

Thanks for posting but didn't find them that cheap, dad was after a set of front pads but even with code you still have delivery on top and where still more expensive then carparts4less.

I dont know how competitive they are accross the board but they were cheaper for meeven with the delivery. I ordered the front and rear together. You can get 10% off anything and then there is quidco.
Hopefully it will help some people.

Not if your in a hurry!

Just looking at Eurocarparts for a clutch for my S reg Ford Focus...I haven't got a clue what the difference is in the different brands though. I've been quoted £174 for a mid range clutch including all labour at a friend's garage. Wondering if I'd be better supplying the clutch myself and getting it fitted.

if thats a petrol focus........to give an idea of prices

petrol fiesta similar age, £70 clutch kit. £80 labour at local garage. so the price you've got isnt bad actually.

Thanks Jordie, yes it is a petrol.

Get them to supply and fit - if theres ever a issue with the clutch then there cannot be an argument as to who needs to stump up for the bill!

I had to own a Focus St170 for a while and needed to get a new clutch. I couldnt believe how expensive the parts were and found a place on ebay. It was so cheap i thought i had stolen it. I needed a dual mass flywheel too. If your interested i can look it up for you.

Thanks, I'll probably get it done at the garage. Best to leave to it the experts I guess because I haven't a clue (I have to admit I haven't a clue what a dual mass flywheel is either). All I know is that the car's getting to an age where it's needing a lot of work and is costing me a fortune unfortunately it's all I've got for now though....tax is due next month too

I didnt know what a dual mass flywheel was either but its sort of connected to the clutch and very expensive. If you take the car to Mr Clutch or somewhere they will try and sell you something else that is pretty expensive, cant remember what its called now(cylinder?). If you have a mate who knows about cars its worth finding out what parts you need or some garages will take the peas.

If it makes you feel any better, i bought an St170 for £1500, spend the equivalent of £1500 on the clutch etc and 6 months later i sold it for £1550 LOL
