Just had the same dilemma myself, after research did the following. The above guys can help.

Are you wanting upgraded pads or OEM. Ive just fitted Ferodo DS2500 at the fronts. IMHO i find these great compared to the OEM. Haven't fully bedded in yet but pedal feel is much better and no fade. The OEM pads had plenty of life left but the fade didnt give me much confidence, unlike the Ferodo's.
The Pagid pads are meant to be slightly better, but at a price. The Ferodo's weigh in approx 150 quid and the Pagid's 199.
Then you need to add fitting on top. There is a link somewhere which describes the DIY method for fitting, if you fancy it I can prob get u the link.

Good luck

The price of pads has risen drastically in the past two years. I used to be able to get Pagid's for under 80.
