Brake Pads

Have just ordered EBC Red-stuff Pads (new formula ceramic)... from
www.brakes4u.co.uk
I cancelled my order for the Green Stuff pads on advice given by EBC themselves.

The price for the Red stuff pads 97. this included the VAT and Postage.. a very good price.

Will let you know what they perfom, after they have been bedded in properly.

The old originals lasted 13,000 miles :shock:

They recomended Red over Green for Turbo models... Better heat fade resistance and the newer ceramic is much more rotor friendly. Scoobs viewed as hard driven cars where heat issues raise thier head.

If you go to the EBC site there is a link to Subie Gal and her report on Red Stuff have added link

www.ebcbrakes.com

Check it out mate.
