On my 93WRX I had Grp N Discs and Pagid Fast Road Pads which I found to very good.

I do know of a guy who can get Pagid stuff at a good price if you are interested ?

dont forget to put a light smear off copper slip on the shims and back of the pads to stop em squeling.
Dont touch the stuff with your mitts as its carsonagenic! (think thats spelt right)

They were fine for me (im slow :wink: ) but they could have contributed to the loud noise when breaking hard at around 70 / 80mph. Like a really loud grinding noise?
