    What Pads?

    ive got 04 plate 1.6 16v twinport and the brakes are standard but when they get warm after a good hard drive they squeel like mad ive de glazed them and greased them (im a mechanic by the way) ive run greenstuff pads before and found them ok but it seems most griffin owners have found 1 thing works best in a particular area. ie panel filters. so, can anyone suggest what pads they found to be best as an uprade and a rough price estimate.
    cheers to all who reply

    Check out some Mintex M1144 (fast road) pads - they ain't the cheapest but they are the best

    Mintex are pretty good. Greenstuffs are good too, but they wear the life out of standard discs. The discs on my Corsa are wearing quicker than the Greenstuff pads.
