    I had EBC turbo groove discs & red stuff pads on and the front discs were absolutely shagged after 35k miles. I don't drive like a maniac, so I'll not be going that route again. Justn replaced the, with OEM discs & Pads & the performance is much better. So I'd just go OEM personally.

    Ds2500 for road.

    EBC are total rubbish, EBC themselves actually put out a warning saying the bonding wasn't strong enough for the weight of our cars and I have personally known of two cars having the pads come clean away from their EBC backings.

    The compound itself isn't bad at all, but the production process it fairly turd.
