    Option 1. Thickness: 16,6, Width: 87,6, Ht: 67,5
    Option 2. Thickness: 17,2, Width: 87, Ht: 53

    There are two b5 pads, and the only difference is the type of retaining spring.

    If you have iron calipers you want the "droopy" springs, if you have aluminium calipers you want the "sticky-up" springs. It makes sense when you look at the two pads.

    Post the part numbers your looking at and wether your car has alloy calipers or steel.
