Brembo and smelly pipes

Thanks for the welcome.

I have a couple of questions that you may be able to help with.
Since purchasing i have noticed a strong smell from the engine if pushed a bit harder. The Radiator hoses have been changed at some stage, to not very good quality. Is it possible the fumy smell comes from them?
Also have Brembo front discs. Under average breaking the perfomance is poor with juddery response.The pads are fine but the Discs may have warped as they are not 100% flat, no grooves or scuffs just an uneven surface. Would you suggest just new discs? if so what is the best place to purchase?
Thanks in advance for any info.

Scoobyparts Ltd Brakes

Subaru Impreza EBC, Black Diamond, Tarox, Pagid, Mintex, Goodridge, HEL, brake fluid :

Dealt with these and found them v good and happy with their service, you sure its just the normal smell from an engine when driven on hard? once it not an oil smell which could be the rocker cover gasket common on drivers side near turbo How to replace the Rocker Cover Gasket if the discs like this better off to change them Brembos be a good replacment but shop around
