my MOT is due in a months time my Front disks have very slight cracks coming from the holes as you all know it is a common fault on the original disks. has anyone had an MOT failure due to this problem?

It's a failure. You will be lucky for it to go through with the cracks.

I'm an MOT tester and I would fail it, when it comes to brakes which is basically your life in the testers hands then no corners should be cut! If the tester misses the cracks (which is unlikely) then you will be lucky.

cracks

The mot has changed, cracks are not a failure unless they extend to the outer edge, also cracks in tyres are not a failure now as long as cord cannot be seen

Small cracks should not make you fail MOT..

I drove mine with cracked discs for like 5 months lol until both discs and pads were at their limits..

Got some alcons now best thing i ever did :)

Ive been for mot a few times with small hairline cracks in the discs and never had a failure, if there small it will be fine but a crack right to the edge clearly visible will obviously be an instant fail as it needs to be.

Go for Pagid RS29's, nothing better as far as i'm concerned. A huge uplift in stopping power over the stock GT-R pads.

Also going to question the point earlier about small cracks in discs emanating from the drill holes. I'd not heard these are MOT failure items.

Just out of curiosity, how many miles have the discs done? My first GT-R had thermal cracking around the stupid disc holes at around 10k miles, but my current one still has no cracks at 18k miles, both driven in the same manner.

Incidently, the first GT-R I made the 'cracked' discs last 28k miles no problem, then sold it. Hairline 'star' cracks are unsightly but not dangerous, they won't fail an MOT.
