    Normal OEM pads currently but will be upgrading to something more suitable in the up coming months when i start hitting the track days. Pagid stuff from Euro`s and stuff is fairly decent for standard stuff and cheap.

    If your wanting GOOD pads then i'd take a look at DS2500 or Mintex M1144/M1155. They're not strictly road legal though.

    Ferodo do the DS Performance range which are road legal and replaced the old DS2000, so they might be worth a look.

    I was going for Mintex M1155s but everyone is saying they dust like crazy. Same with the M1144s but even more so with the next ones up. They`re good for the money it seems although reports that the Mintex pads crumble on the edges quite easily. DS2500s are probably as good as 1155s but less dusty but then the price is about 40/50quid more..

    Might just put up with the dust if i get the Mintex pads and get some dark grey/black wheels and end up washing them a lot lol. On Ebay you can get front 1155s and rear 1144s for a tiny bit more than just the front DS2500s.

    Track pads could be classed as not legal as im guessing if you had a prang at low speeds the pads could be blamed as they`d be accussed as not being suitable at low, cold driving speeds on public roads.

    No all EBC pads are dog**** so the general word on the street suggests. Blue and orange are meant to be good but then they`re trial pads and only out for a few models so far. I supposed it depends on your needs.

    The aforementioned pads dont have R90 approval, which is required for all passenger cars build after 2000 afaik.

    They're also sometimes marked with "not for road use".

    Mintex M1144/55 arent usually that expensive? Certainly a fair amount cheaper than the Ferodos anyway.

    MINTEX M1144 BRAKE PADS / MINTEX CTECH PERFORMANCE PADS - MDB1531M1144 - Mintex Racing Brake Pads £94.90 MINTEX Brake Product Range MINTEX Brake Pads - MDB1526 to MDB1550

    If your wanting standard pads, then just buy a good brand like pagid or ferodo premier and they'll be fine.

    Someone there might be able to go out and measure them for you.
