    my advice:

    Don't ruin decent brakes with **** pads.

    Do you have regular 996 / boxster S fronts or turbo calipers?

    What's the car going to be used for?

    You won't get any help with DS2500's from me.

    They're Fu*king horrible things, and I'd advise anyone against them strongly.

    **** from cold.
    Average when warm
    **** when hot.

    All the downsides of a race pad, dust etc, none of the up sides.

    They also are famously bad for causing brake judder. I firmly believe this is why so many people think LCR discs warp. It's the pads.

    As I said, avoid.

    Tbh its a but of a difficult one.
    My mechanic advises them as says other pads cause discs to warp, he had edition 30,rs4, ur Quattro, so think he knows what he's talking about, but I know you do aswell.
    I suppose opinions differ.
    So what other pads would you recommend?

    If you're just after a day to day pad that performs well and doesn't cost the earth, the OE Brembo pads do the job nicely...

    I could probably dig out a part number for you if you like?

    Yea, same... I haven't made it to track with these pads yet, but they've taken a lot of hard B road abuse and have never let me down...

    The DS3000's I was running before deffo have much sharper bite when up to temp, but they're noisy as hell, chew through discs and leave a horrible mess on rims, calipers and even down the side of the car.

    These then...?
    Just seem crazy cheap for decent pads?!
    As long as they don't damage the discs, i can always upgrade at a later date? PhotoGrid_1474883269931.jpg

    Yea, those... Perfect for weekend/fast road use.

    I couldn't comment how they perform on track, but as people have said, not much work to swap them out for something more aggressive!..

    The issue with pad swapping is deposits and judder.

    Many compounds are sensitive to deposits from different pads and the result is often judder for the first few hundred miles.

    Good practice to avoid this is to stick within the same pad manufacturer as the pad ranges share many properties, for example Mintex 1155 for road use, and an F2/F4R for track use.

    Personally, I just use the same pads for all uses, but mine doesn't cover THAT much road mileage (~8k pa)

    Ok so the oe brembo pads will be good enough for fast road use then.
    As long as they wont damage the discs, im sure the setup will be miles better than the standard setup i have now!

    I used to have 996 turbo front calipers and I tried few pad types over the time I had them.my use was day to day driving with some fast hard road use stopping from waaay into triple digits and found the best pad in my opinion was textar pads.from memory the pads were like £60/70

    Textar are similar to Brembo in the way they're also an OE supplier for hi-end brakes and car manufactures... A lot of Ferrari's, Range Rovers and Porsche's will come with them from factory.

    Either way both are fine for fast road use

    I'm running ds2500 on my Porsche calipers n it stops without any fuss, hot or cold. Ran them when I went round the ring n didn't have a single problem with them. They do make your callipers n wheels dusty but no more than any other pad I've had.

    on badgerwagen i ran for years with ds3000's, tried performance frictions, pagid blues.. and now sit with pagid rst.
    the rst seem to last the longest, and seem disk friendly too.

    DS3000's are a massive step up from DS2500's.

    I whole heartedly agree with Prawn with regards to the **** from cold, and **** when too hot, and the deposits. They were perfectly acceptable until I got to the hybrid power levels, then I found the limit of the pads.
    Having experienced the same with my LCR as Prawn, I ended up with Carbotech XP12's...which were absolutely awesome all round, but very expensive!

    So next debate.
    Ds2500
    Or ds3000.
    Similar price.
    Pro's and cons of both?

    Have Ds2500 on my Rs4. Track the car twice a month. Wicked pads compared to OEM. Haven't tried Ds3000 yet so can not comment.
    I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with 2500s. Granted they need a bit of heat in them before they start working properly but usually 2-3 moderate stops bring them up to temp. Dust?? What dust? Have no dust on my wheels after full day at the track. :)
