    Thumbs Up Recommended brake pads???

    I've just bought drilled & grooved discs allround and was wondering what's the best pads to get and should I just go standard on rear and performance on front?

    Appreciate your opinions peeps

    Red stuff will going on mine when due, I'm sure Bertone Ben will agree as he's got them fitted and stopping power is spot on.

    I use Yellowstuff and wont use any other pad

    Redstuff I hated so the fact the Yellows work perfect with 230bhp and a heavy 5dr means they should be upto the task when i crank the power up......until i get the 4/6 pots that is

    i will continue to preach geordiebandits advice- yellow stuff on the fronts. i have yellow stuff on the front and standards on the rear. work perfect for me.

    redstuff are good but a tad noisy, very low dust from them (makes wheels easier to clean lol) just get better and better with heat. im runnig these front and back.

    I have red stuff with drilled and grooved discs, I dont know what creates the noise but when breaking there is definately excessive noise (clicking sound)
