    Brake help ?

    hiya all! needing some help with picking some new pads for my 1.9cdti with tuning box

    I keep cooking the pads that are on it and if iv been having fun the fade is unreal, brakes good for one bend and you get to the next and have half the braking power

    also wondering if my rear pads are low would it cause the piston to get stuck out and keep the pad pushed against the disk ? because if iv been giving it some shoe the rear brakes squeal while driving but once iv stoped and let them cool down it goes back to normal?

    Thanks

    I got red stuff and am not impressed at all. Poor when cold, good when warm, but crap again when hot! They're ok for occasional sporty use, but no good for hard driving or track days. Go for Vauxhall Police Spec pads!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
