Made in a town previously known for strong cheddar.
Having said that, I put them on my a3 qts as it was all I could get at short notice and they seemed perfectly fine.
Replaced them with mintex later though.

I believe they are a budget brand, I think ECPs own brand - heard a lot of stories about their stuff not lasting long, I would spend a bit more - buy cheap - buy twice

I have Eicher discs and pads on the front and rear of my Fabia. Seem fine, bite well and appear to be lasting.

No issues.

You’re correct only about £25.00 more.
