Well I have EBC Turbo Groove Discs and Red Stuff Ceramic pads which are so much better than OE stuff and you can get a great deal from Camsport... make sure you mention the site.. Need to warm up as not to good (still as good as OE) from stone cold but when hot they are great...

Have to agree with pete, I also have grooved and ceramics, they are awesome, and a lot less brake dust... which means less cleaning....

just a word of warning in our experience the EBC's have a poor mileage ability..............

plenty of "better" options out there (in our opinion of course)..................

for an unbiased opinion drop me a line and 'll run thro' some options for you without obligation if you wish??

and can probs sort a little 'deal'
