what brake pads?

by Allys Cally » Sat Feb 05, 2011 5:46 pm

ok i've bought a set of these discs, now i've been looking at a set of pads to go with them. but dont know wither to go for a set of greenstuff pads or a set brembo pads.
has anybody had any experiance with either of these on their v6?
i did had a set of redstuff on my mk2 GTE years ago but i think these would take to long to heat up with the v6 and it being a heavier car i dont fancy my chance of them stopping the car when their still cold.
any input appreciated :mrgreen:

I've got std pads on my black diamond discs, but after reading this would greenstuff pads improve on B'Diamond discs?
