Hi all
I have a 2015 megane 265 rs.i love the car and it makes me smile when I put my foot down.
Problem is stopping it seems to suffer badly from brake fade when they are hot . Despite the huge brembos on it
Which pads and discs should I be looking at
Thanks
Si

Front calipers can suffer from sticking pads. Strip them down and give them a clean.

I'd change the brake fluid too.

It goes off after a few years and is worth changing. It's a messy job but it's not hard to do yourself if you use an EZ Bleed.

If you're just using it on the road, any decent Dot 4 should do the trick, if you're planning on doing trackdays then it's worth getting something a little better (I used Motul RBF600 when I did mine).
