Not sure on your spec of car but cost me £65 for both front and rear pads and £72pr discs that was for 2004yr 330i coupe. Forget all this drilled disc green pad rubbish, just end up with noisey brakes.

    Just my 2ps

    I would just like to voice my opinion here

    Being a wheel fanatic my first choice of disc and pad set up was EBC Grooved discs and Greenstuff Pads all around. I had them on the 1.8 for ages and really rated them

    The fact that they do not cover your wheels in horrible/harmful brake dust was great (Brake dust rips into the lacquer on alloy wheels causing them to pit and start corroding) I was more than impressed with the way they stopped the car too

    I made sure that I used this upgrade on the Motorsport upgrade

    If these aren't supposed to be much cop compared to some of the others then I'd hate to think how much more my braking could be improved

    Seriously though, I rate them highly

    If you think EBC are good you really should try something like Pagid or Ferodo

    Can't wait to get them on mine

    Which Ferodo Pads did you go for?

    I have got some DS2500 sitting at home Going to get some performance grooved discs too! Not drilled though, have seen far too many discs crack around the holes!

    i have just fitted ebc ultimax discs and redstuff pads and am impressed with the cold 'bite' i'm getting from a track rated pad
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
