    If you off road do not get cross drilled discs, dimpled and/or slotted are fine though. I purchased MTEC awhile back, so decided to check the 'service record' on my long running thread on 'MUD', it turns out I fitted them in December 2015, I cannot believe it is over three and a half years, anyway no issues, so I am a thumbs up for MTEC kit.

    regards

    I've been using Mtec for 10+ years on various cars, fantastic discs for the money. Been running cross drilled and grooved on the truck for 2 years mostly off road. Work very well with Mintex pads I find

    I used to use the cross drilled on my comp Discovery, the problem is the cross drilling fills the holes with mud and small stones, when the mud dries out the stones slowly break up causing squealing noises as they get dragged around the disc.

    I agree the discs are great, and IIRC the pads are Mintex as well, I did all four wheels with the same spec.

    Either way, the kit is good.

    regards

    I only ended up with drilled as I needed them before a trip and that’s all they had in stock that could get to me in time.

    Not had any issues with them in dust and rocks yet
