I have a 2005 S40 T5 FWD that is going to need breaks soon. I know that you can't turn the stock rotors and have already replace the rear breaks once since new with Volvo disc (car has 81K miles on now). I'd like to go with a good aftermarket disc and pads but don't want to spend a fortune since I don't do any real performance driving with it....It's my daily.<p>Any recommendations???

yeah hes right dude, you dont need it. if our cars had 500 hp then ok, but we're fine with the breaking power

What's the name of the place? What kind of pads/rotors do you get from them?
