Also with regard to parts I found these guys AUTODOC in Germany, they had the best pricing and took only 9 days from clicking buy via the app to arriving on my door step, prices in euros so watch the exchange rates before you buy, I have. 350mm front and 325mm rear disks, went for Zimmerman discs and Bosch Pads all round and paid £313 inc vat and delivery, I couldn’t find any Uk suppliers for under £480 so happy with my deal.

That is a good price. I have used auto doc before. Eurocarparts want nearly £600 for brembo discs and pads all round.

Update on my progress
Finally finished, took my time as was in no rush but some elements of the job was a bit time consuming, after I had all the right tools started with the rears, as I said in my previous post the EPB hack I found on another forum didn’t work for me so released the EPB and then removed the negative batt wire and then could safely work on removing the callipers and carriers, a bit tight removing the T50 torx holding the disc on, didn’t want it shering off as didn’t have a spare screw, but after a lot of penetrating lube and some whacks with a lump hammer the disc was off.Fitting the new disc and pads simple as but had to elongate the cutout for the brake wear sensor on the Bosch pads, The caliper piston needs to be wound back in but remove the brake fluid cover and remove some fluid or it is hard work,The front discs were a lot harder to remove they were really corroded onto the hub, if you can get the correct tool to remove the discs I surgest you do as I had to resort to a blow torch to heat the disc up around the hub and lots of penetrating lube and hammer blows on the back of the old discs, the front piston is just push back,all went back together a lot faster, pleased with the outcome.
I’ll post some pics up a bit later

Well done. Be interesting, if at winter, you don't get any brake squeal.

Hopefully not I did use copper grease in the appropriate places and the pads also had a rubber backing where the callipers touch so we shall see in 6 months or earlier,

Great job NooNoo. I'm afraid I wimped out after I heard the problems you had with the Disc holding screw. I had similar issues many years ago and ended up breaking the screw and having to drill it out so decided to book my car to my local aftermarket garage. He completed the job in 4 hours and charged me £500 for complete set of Pads and Discs so happy with that. Decided just to go for aftermarket parts as didn't think the quality of Jaguar parts (particularly the Discs) was worth the extra money.

Nice job NooNoo. Do your new pads use all of the disc unlike the Jaguar ones that leave an unused ring? I hate the appearance of my discs, they just look cheap.

Sorry haven't been looking at the post recently but Yes meandraft, after a couple hundred miles the pads look as if they are wearing on the disks to the full width as expected, heres a couple close ups attached and you can see a small anti corrosion grey painted edge of around 1mm at the top and bottom of the discs, I don't expect I'll be changing them again on this car in the future as only plan on keeping it for maybe another 15-20k miles so hopefully they will stay looking rust free.

They look so much better than original equipment.
