Anyone on here know the part number of the front brake pads fitted to the RS280?
Rockingham track day coming up so I like to have a spare set just in case.

Tried local dealer who apparently could not find them on his system ???

Are they in fact the same as those fitted to the MkIII Trophy-R?

My dealer has just got back to me so to answer my own questions...........

Part number for the pads 4106 033 07R
Unsurprisingly not a stock item but can be ordered for, wait for it, £278.00 per set.

Plugging the part no into Google returns no results so I guess that either they are not the same as the Throphy-R.
Possibility is that they are with the part number changed but that to me seems unlikely.

Going to be a while before other manufacturers start to offer their alternatives so I guess I will need to order a set.
May wait a little while until I am sure that my recent software upgrade has indeed cured the issues I was experiencing.

That's the only downside to having quality brakes such as Brembos-the cost!
A warning to anyone who has the bi-material discs on their RS280; my Pug 308 GTI has Alcon 4 pot calipers with 380mm bi-material discs. Replacement costs are- £300 for new pads & discs are £500 EACH!!
Glad I'm trading it in before they need replacing!

For the type of disc it is, £500 isn't too bad to be honest.

I know. Still be a bit of a shock if you need to replace discs & pads at the same time. £1300!

£300 is up in high performance territory. A lot of aftermarket options to choose from at more competitive price or far better performance

Quite possibly, but not at the moment.

Entering the Renault part number into Google returns no result and none of the 5/6 retailers (car parts or brakes) actually listed the Meg 280 on their systems.

No doubt it will happen in time but for now Renault is the only option.

My comment was more about the pug 308.

Are the 280 calipers the same as the 250/275?

If the pads are a new shape what about getting carbotech to do you some if you send them some pads to use as a template?

The MK4 calipers look suspiciously like the MK3's : are we sure they require different pads ? (ignoring the comedy pricing from Renault).

The mark three trophy R just had standard RS pads from the 250/275 models.
