    Nice to hear if they are good on a S3. I'm getting them fitted on Tuesday.

    I had these fitted on mine on saturday morning by the previous owner. Really solid brakes but mine are squeaking like hell! Ridiculously annoying.

    I rate ferrodos but they are very dusty. I've not tried brembo pads but the brembo max grooved discs are the best I've used.

    Price on 996 Turbo fronts please Keith.

    How would you rate these compared to Pagid RS4-2's?



    They're �171.59 James.

    This is the information Brembo sent me when I asked about the Brembo sport pad vs DS2500 --


    � INITIAL BITE ++
    � RESISTANCE TO FADING =
    � AVERAGE FRICTION LEVEL +
    � MODULATION +
    � FRICTION CONSISTANCY =
    � PAD WEAR +++
    � HEAT CONDUCTIVITY =
    � COMPRESSIBILITY -
    � COMFORT (NOISE) +++
    � EASE OF BEDDING +++
    � RESISTANCE TO FADE =
    � LOW BRAKE DUST LEVEL +++

    If you weren't so far away I would let you have a go in mine. The low dust bit is rubbish, gettin loads o brake dust the same as ferrodo ds in my opinion!

    But they are good, and compliment the discs!

    Well, got the pads fitted this morning and done some casual driving and shopping etc, and decided to take the scenic route home. First off the initial bite is a lot better than oem, not needing as must pressure on the pedal.
    Around the country roads there was a Hugh difference in performance and it seemed to last.
    I also had ATE blue fluid put in her, so no brake fade.
    All in all, a great upgrade for little money, and the pads get my recommendation.

    Well I done another trackday on Monday last in mondello park, 4-5 laps with Hugh amount if heavy braking and smoke billowing out from the front wheels while in the pits, no brake fade at all! Well impressed and would reccomend to anybody on the site. Done some more laps during the day and couldn't have been happier.
