Brake pads query

Hi Guys

can anyone recommend for or against some replacement rear pads from Nippon Auto parts ( ebay shop ) ??

they seem damn cheap and I dont fancy the cost from a dealership for the ones that fit brembo calipers..160quid fitted !!!

has anyone ever used em or should I stick to getting some EBC redstuff ones for a bit more cash

cheers

not sure how much they are (you don't say in your post!!), but i would personally stay away from the cheap discount stuff, a decent set of pads that will outperform your std Brembo items can be had for around 50 and will do exactly what you expect with a good life to boot,..............

You would though, Jamie

I have Red Stuff and they are well worth the money

Give Camsport a try and mention Dot.Org for discount http://www.camsport.co.uk/index.html

Or give Stockcar a ring as he won't steer you wrong.
