    What would you recommend as a good, fast road, brake pad for my car? Not cheap, definitely not too expensive, middle of the road pads that do not create so much brake dust, that everytime you drive to the shop's and back you need to get out the jet wash just to see what the rims actually look like!
    At the moment I suspect that the pads on the car must be really cheap one's since braking can only be called adequate, at best.I do not want to change the discs, unless I have too. Do I have to change the brake sensors at the same time? Warning light has not come on, lot's of meat left in the current pads.
    She is not a lightweight car so I would prefer more braking power, with alot less foot pressure. I will want to change the brake fluid as well, any suggestions? Cheers

    Nice one mate, just what I needed to hear! Wonder how long the

    'Redstuff' pads are expected to last? I know you can get them from 'Demon

    Tweeks', don't know if stores like 'Halfords' sell them too.
