I know that some here have used them Chris. Pagid rs29 is a good fast road pad for the fronts.

Iirc, green aren't suitable for the turbo. I had reds and hated them. There was no pad feel and they barely stopped the car when cold (which was quite often when you're just driving normally).

so EBC pads arnt the way to go then by the sound of it.

mine should be ok for couple of years as yet, but shopping for information incase I swap them out for something better.... so far it's looking like the pagids pads.

I have all EBC stuff on my coop, and EBC disks, I've used the EBC stuff for years and always thought of it as best value for money and easiest to use.

You can see the pads fit straight in, front and rear. I think Reds are standard for the coop, but any size pad you can get in one colour you can get in any other colour. For example, my old mitsubishi carisma used EBC black (Budget pads) but my FTO used green ads, but were the same size and the green pads were the upgrade for the risma. I used the yellow pads in the FTO because I drove it like it was stolen. I personally think the reds are best for the coop, but they now do the blue pads, which are pre-bedded, they're not road legal but you can buy them none the less, jsut phone them up and tell them what size you have and say you want them in blue. I've not yet tried them but I was going to put them on the scooby as soon as she was back on the road.

I have tried the blue ones - stay away from them they are sh*te. Good cheap allround pads are Ferodo DS2500.

After reading a few favourable reviews on here for EBC yellow stuff, I thought I'd give them a try. So far I'm pretty disappointed, similar to szkom's opinion of the reds - not much feel and it never seems like they're going to stop the car. I was nervous driving down the Stelvio Pass last week and equally unsure driving round the 'Ring hence pretty slow laps (although I did overtake a 599 GTB cool )

I tell you what pad might be worth looking at, brembo sport.
they're a British company that makes pads for brembo under license, I've never used them but a friend put them on his subaru when we fitted all new brembo calipers to it. They're expensive and harsh, but I kinda like them, I would definitely consider trying them on my coop.
