Just the pads, the disks were in good condition, the first set of pads I tried squealed like a pig, the second dearer set still squealed not so bad, but still annoying & required you to hit the break pedal with your knee almost starting it's travel from your ear hole to stop the damned car. I've had some cheaper ones that required significantly more pressure, others that squealed a great deal & others which did both.

The only complete satisfaction I got was by paying top whack for Renault parts
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
