What condition were the discs in?

I have used Textar pads on my Megane without any problems with squeeling in the past. I always put copper grease on the back (non friction side of the pad) I found the liquid stuff supplied in the past with cheap pads to be rubbish.

However having said that before I got shot of the Focus I fitted Ferrodo pads and standard Brembo discs and was amazed at the difference. They were amazing, and don't have to be that expensive I used Parkers parts website.
