    Which pads with drilled/grooved discs?

    ok just ordered myself some drilled and grooved discs for my Sri, anyone have a recomendation for some pads

    Do i stick to GM ones.
    Do i go for something else

    I require something which will last a while as i use the car every day for work and preferabley no fade as atm i get a fair bit however hoping the discs wil solve this out

    Cheers for any help

    ferrodo ds2500 cost about £120
    greenstuff are about £65

    I used greenstuff on the track and didn't have any fading.
    good on the road too once they are bedded in

    I recently got black diamond pads all round on my grooved/drilled discs and they seem very good. They're also cheaper than standard Vaux items from LMF.

    I've got Greenstuff on my drilled/grooved black diamond discs. After nearly 1000 miles they're bedded in nicely and braking is excellent!!
