What brake pads do you have with your DBA 4000's?

Yeah both sets of pads were with the DBA 4000s.

Both sets of pads were pretty dusty, definately more dust from both than the standard ford pads. Both wear quite a bit quicker than the standard pads did also, but that is what you get for the extra stopping performance I guess.

I prefer the SRT over the greenstuffs, and will be ordering a new set probably next week.

I found that the greenstuffs faded much more than the SRTs do. Especially if you are doing some spirited driving in mountain areas.

Thanks for the comments guys ....
Oh well .... looks like better stopping comes at the expense of more dust.

Cheers mattronics, I don't have alot of mountains in this area, but I do have a hankering for spirited driving. My main concern is cold performance, but not at the sacrifice of hot performance. I am keen on track days so I may have to invest in the SRTs, luckily I found your posts before I finalised my order..

Thanks again fellas, all comments have been valuable!

Happy Motoring
