Hi All, Noob with a view and 1st post.

I recently upgraded the front rotors to DBA slotted rotors and QFM pads
http://www.ausbrake.com.au/ on my Ef Gli

The cost all up was $420 fitted ($40) not including seized calipers needing replacement ($210). The pad cost was around $115 for the set but the owner of the brake store swore by them as a non dusty street performance pad.

I was cautious as I had not heard of them before, not that I know a great deal on em, I had used Bendix Advance and had good longevity from them previously. There was a good article on Performance Pads here which swayed me, cached on google.

http://www.google.com.au/search?q=cache:EslzUXM9q1IJ:www.autospeed.com/A_0351/page1.html+QFM+disc+pads&hl=en&lr=lang_en

Anyway apparently QFM's been around for a while so i gave em a crack, still bedding at the moment. Will update.

Cheers
Homie
