    Evening all,

    my 325's front brakes are useless so i was thinking of changing the front pads. Should I go for replacements like mintex or upgrade them with ebc redstuffs? Will i also need new wear sensors?

    cheers

    i have no complaints about my redstuff pads...but i didnt notice any obvious improvements in the braking dept.
    if your brakes are a bit iffy then i would say you would get good results from a simple fluid change...bet that perks them up
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    ferrodo DS 2500 pads are good and braided hoses are an improvement.

    As others have said a change of fluid might help, in the service book with my car it says it should be done every 2 years

    Theres quite a few threads on brake pads mate do a search

    But i'd go with changing your fluid. Mine made a massive difference to the movement of the pedal. Next on the cards is braided hoses
