    From the Ts&Cs "You must carry out all other brake repairs (to brake discs, drums, cables and hydraulics) found during an inspection or service within 10 days to continue to claim the free replacement."

    The pads may be free, but you'll pay for the disks. And they'll say you need disks most times - with non-asbostos pads that are used these days, the disks are designed to wear too.

    Sorry, this isn't a grabbit. Its not quite a con, but I'm going to pass.
