Brake Pads


Recommended Posts

(XF 3.0d S premium luxury)
Hi all,
I've just had a full set of brake pads and new sensors fitted after getting the brake pad low indicator displayed on dash, so I thought I would let you in on a few facts and figures related to my car.
Firstly the warning indicator came up about two weeks ago, the car has covered just over 25,000 mile since last pad change. After doing some serious home work on the web I decided to go with EBC pads costing £63.00 with vat. The sensors, one on the front and one on rear are those items that might not need replacing but it pays to do it at the same time, I got these from my local motorist store at only £6.00 each, jaguar wanted £35.00 each. The job was done by my local garage for £60.00. I'am not sure how the sensors work but the pads only had a few millimetres of wear left on so I was pleased I managed to get it booked in when I did. I've just checked Jaguars fixed prices for this job at £340 that's if they don't  find anything else wrong while there under the car !!!!! So that's a nice little saving that I might spend on the wife's Xmas box ! if I've bored you I apologise if I've helped you I'am happy all the best Dave.

I had a similar experience with my 2011 XF 3.0d S Portfolio. The Jag dealer quoted AU$2500 for replacement front rotors and pads.

After a bit of research I purchased replacement front and rear dimpled slotted ebc rotors, red stuff pads and wear sensor cables for AU$1000 and paid a local garage 2 hours labour to fit. Whilst he had the brakes apart, I took the calipers home and did the red ceramic heatproof paint thing.

Big, big savings and great brakes.

Hi Mark,

Am loving that Australian version for drilled / vented discs 😀 I must admit a nearly went for the those pads but thought they we're more track day. Good call on you doing the calipers at the same time must look really smart.

      Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types
