    Porsche Big Red Brake Pads

    I'm not too impressed with the Hawk pads that came with my Porsche/ECS brake kit. Anyone got any good recommendations for replacements?

    Too much power???? Is that possible?

    I've been thinking about replacing them for a while, they just don't bite like they should.

    Both GSF and ECP do Textar pads they could well be cheaper and depending where you live they could be more accessible

    I think your nickname of 'Mincing Maguire' says more about your driving style!


    The standard Porsche pads are good...certainly when fitted to a Porsche

    That's peanuts...

    You know the script. Time/place, blah blah. You can take the yellow beast that couldn't get away from me last time, or that Mk3 if you need something a little more agile.

    Twice the price of S3 pads. God, you're right. The Scottishness is wearing off on me.

    You could try the Pagid RS42 (Blues), they were really good. I used them with my 996 Mov'it kit.
