    Brembo Brake pads

    Seeing as my s3 wants everything under the sun at the minute, and im to nice to say no, she now wants some brake pads as the warning light has flashed up.

    I'm running standard front brakes, and have seen the pads which I think are cheap.. any body run them?

    never used them,
    gues it depends how hard you drive. I use mintex if that helps.
    may be worth changing your fluid while your at it
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    I used to run Brembo's discs and pads on my mk1 punto back in the day!

    I still live to tell the tale and I drove it like I stole it 24/7.....I suppose it also depends on how you'll be using the car?

    You'd expect them to be able to make decent pads and discs considering they are the market leaders when it comes to their calipers.

    If you have DS2500 on at the moment, then I personally would definitely try and replace them with the same.

    From what I've read the DS2500 are the best pads out there and so coming from these to Brembo's will mean increased heat fade and braking distances compared to what you're already used to.
