What pads???


Recommended Posts

As per title, I would like to upgrade the stock OEM pads with a performance pad, car is a daily driver and gets a bit of abuse on country roads now and again. I actually find the OEM Akebono pads very good and do not want to compromise bite from cold but welcome any increase in stopping power and less fade would be nice aswell. 


Any suggestions and feedback welcome.

I really like the CL RC5+ on mine, bit dusty but awesome stopping power :)

Just taken them off mine, hella dusty, amazing stopping power, but holy hell do they eat discs! 

I know that’s kinda how they work, but I wasn’t expecting them to be quite that aggressive :lol:

In fairness my discs were the cheapest of the cheap, but I’m damn sure I was well past the point of legality for the MOT hence having to change them. That was after two years and about 20k miles, pads still had about 40% left but the discs definitely didn’t :lol:
