    How much are you willing to spend? I've got feredo DS2000 or something along them lines, can confirm name if needed, they are brilliant far far better than standard. Can't say what they are like against the mintex though.

    Using standard ATE pads on the Design (same 308mm brakes as the GSi), they work pretty well, not had them fade yet.

    Im running black diamond on my 308s, yeah its only a 1.8 but i gets driven like it should be and i brake hard, these pads have never let go and never over heated.

    Well worth the money from LMF
