    I run Performance Friction Carbon Metallics in mine.
    Std Galfer pads that come with Brembo's are ok (sort of Pagid fast road comparible I would say)
    Ferodo DS2500's work better, last longer and put up with track use better. Not up to my ibiza tho, so trying some DS3000's shortly to compare. PF CM pads are AWESOME stoppers. Durable too. (not cheap tho)

    Cheers Bill ;)

    Im putting a similar set-up on mine but i've got some crappy green stuff pads. Looking for some proper pads looks like ds2500's might just do the trick!! :)

    I don tthink ds2500's will dissapoint, especially on a lighter car. Mine works them too hard but with less weight they would be perfect

    I've used DS2500 on my OEM calipers, and yes they're good, but after about 2 track days, you might as well bin them as they lose their bite I find.

    DS3000 are awesome, not for road use though < whistles >

    Nothing is there? , just remember him getting some discs and did a search for your name and this came up with AP in the suject, just wasn't sure if they were the same thing.
