    Hi Guys

    OK I know there are loads of threads on this but just want simple straight quick answers rather than spending ages reading through all the posts!

    I have the standard brake discs on the Audi S3 (99) and green stuff pads which i have had twice now. I like these also because the produce less brake dust than the standard Audi pads I used to have. EBC have stopped doing the greenstuff as far as I know and now its redstuff as my option but I feel maybe they are abit harsh for my car!!??

    What pads would you suggest I buy please?

    thanks

    ...tut, tut!!! :no:

    Fronts... Ferodo DS2500's all day long

    Rears... OEM or decent equiv (Padgit for example), no need for fancy rears

    I have actually gone for standard pads on my standard discs. Did have the green stuff on the standard discs. Do you think the standard pads are fine? I just hate all the brake dust they produced......

    Tanya EBC do red stuff pads aswell, i have them on mine, they come with a sensor like the oem pads, they don't do much dust and the dust that does happen isn't black, its more grey

    I folowed the instructions, drove the car on a long ring road late at night and kept braking (half pedal force) in 4-5 seconds periods building up the heat in the pads, did this about 25 times..I guess I am just unlucky.. they dont squeal when they are warm just when cold.
