    GREENSTUFF disc pads or the like. Worth it?

    Slight brake squeak and suspect new disc pads required. Fed up with cleaning alloys of brake dust. Service is due so is it worth my buying an improve formula disc pad and asking Audi dealer to fit them?

    Mintex 1144 pads would be suitable for road use.

    I tried the EBC RedStuff pads and was deeply unimpressed.
    Squealed and offered no improvement over stock pads.

    I've tried EBC RED, YELLOW, GREEN on various cars and never ever had any form of decent braking with them.

    Only semi positive result was when I bought a road car fitted with ECB BLUE (semi-race/trackday). that wouldn't stop the car when cold but were massively impressive when being a "B Road Terrorist" e.g. really hacking the car around on twisty roads..
