Personally, I would just get the proper pads from Bentley - I don't think it's worth it for the saving, which will be £100-£120. It's a lot easier, and you'll be confident they are right. I wouldn't even buy the aftermarket ones from Flying Spares. I just don't think it's worth it with a car like this, which, let's not forget, is a 2.5 tonne car and, if you have a 96MY, 380 odd bhp.
You can be absolutely sure the OE pads will be nothing less than the very best, because they have a Bentley logo on the box - and that is the reputation of not only Bentley, but VW too. Braking components would not be sold with that logo unless they were spot on.
