    My Front brake pads need to be replaced and I would like to know peoples opinion on/experience on the likes of EBC redstuff, Terox etc? Or am I best just getting standard replacements?
    I've read a few threads but not found the answers I am looking for so thought I'd ask the question.
    I do not want to get track or race pads as the car is used on the road and as a everyday car.

    Standard replacements will do the job, but things like Red Stuff or Green Stuff will perform better!

    i can tell you redstuff work very well on my car
    no difference in initial bite from cold over stock...and meant to resist fade better.
    i have the ebc discs on the front too...good combo but oem stuff can work out a bit cheaper.
    you pays your money
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    i had a set of axxis ultimates fitted to the front on my 330ci about 6 months ago and i rate them second to none, not cheap tho about £80 for pads inc p+p.
