at work we use bizztec maxistop pads. theyre are good quality quiet pad, they last a while and have a decent bite no too mention low dust too :lol: butr if youve got the cash go for bendix ultimate. only problem with these are that they dont typically last as long and chew your rotors out quicker too. youd expect that from metalized pad

Bendix have been around for a long time and are made in australia!! i use bendix standard as im no hoon!! but you can always go for the cheaper brands that produce almost no brake dust but normally they chew the rotors, its up to you in the end.

I have heard really good things about the ebc range all over the place, although I havent had a set fitted before, I will be using them next pad change.
Cheers.

I will put in a very high reccomendation for Hightek Brakes. A few people on here know i had really bad shudder problems for over 40,000kms. New rotors, calipers and 4 sets of pads and nobody could work it out. Took it to Cam at HTB and they took it for a drive, then booked it in the next afternoon. Fixed the shudder problems (was a series of mistakes by former mechanics) and took the time to do everything properly. Now been 10000kms (best before this was 6000kms) without shudder coming back, and no signs at all. Also very honest and reasonably priced.

Pad wise - I have had Bendix Advance & Ultimates, a few cheaper ones, and now Axxis pads (made by Bendix) The Axxis pads were fitted as a cheaper trial pad to see if the shudder had gone, but are holding up greatly, very little dust and as good to drive with as any of the pads i have had (perhaps the ultimates bit slightly harder, but were dusty and harsh on the rotors). The Axxis pads were quite cheap as well, considering how well they have performed.

ah ok cheers, a mate of mine reccommended that i use the ones below the ultimates as they are a little softer and produce less brake dust, just wondering which ones are better to run with standard rotors or slotted rotors?

sorry for stealing thread time :)
