    Green Stuff

    Been looking throught PVD and have seen Green stuff break pads.

    Are they as good as they look and worth the money?? (Mk4 £54.95)

    Thanks

    i think you'll find most peoples impression on green stuff to be pretty poor, vaux standard pads are far better

    I get loads of dust with my vaux pads though. I thought mintex (or something like that) was quite a recommended one here.

    So world rally drivers should use vauxhall pads?????? :shock:

    OK, rally drivers mainly use EBC red stuff, but the theory is the same, my green stuff pads have outbraked far more times than my standard vaux ones ever did, low dust, look good, only down side is that they dont last quite as long as OEM pads!

    If people have had trouble with Green pads, they havent worn them in properly, at fast speed they really work, no brake fade, just pure stop stop stop stop stop

    Does anyone have the part no. for the EBC rear pads to fit the Lucas calipers (I know there are 2 types (Bosch and Lucas) of rear capliers for the ABS model - 264mm diameter).

    On another note, do you think it's the rotors that makes most of the dust considering the rotors have a high carbon content? Has anyone changed just the rotors but ran the stock Lucas pads?
