    I've just ordered some EBC green stuff front pads as mine are on the limit at the moment.

    In the future would definitely like some S3/TT-RS brakes but seeing as I've just ordered some Weitec Hicon Gt Coilovers, a new clutch and DMF, think I've spent enough this week!

    After seeing this video I'm in two minds about EBC green stuff :ermm: YouTube - EBC Green-stuff nach ruhiger Landstra├čenfahrt ;)

    We all like to push our cars to the limit now and then (within reason of course) lol Just don't want mine to heat up that badly. If anyone has these on their car let me know what you think of them, compared to stock brakes. :thumbsup:

    Worth searching this forum on brakes etc.

    I had a set of EBC redstuff pads stuck on mine as a stop-gap before getting a proper brake kit.

    In restrospect I can say I wish I hadn't bothered.....marginally better initial bite can be weighed against the following:

    1.Noise,including squealing on a level I've never had before.
    2.Costs equivalent to other better pads such as Ferodo DS2500
    3.Fade resistance no better than the OEM pads under heavy braking.

    Now that some proper brakes have arrived,these things are in the bin.
