Im using bendix performax, next step down from ultimates.

Stopping is fine, usually takes a fair bit of thrashing before any fade (read: no slotted discs on there). Beautiful in the wet.

Bugger all brake dust and they go pretty easy on the rotors. Have heard ultimates will chew thru rotors and make fair bit of dust in the process.

Bendix advance I thought were s**t on the slotted rotors. EBC Greenstuff's are better, but need to be kept warm to do their best.. If they are better than Ultimate's, then I don't know what I'm going to do however. I still think the brakes aren't good enough for such a large car.

EBC greenstuff all round on RDA slotteds
Don't know what theyre like in wet, the car has never been out in the rain as it spends most of it's time in the carport, only used for highway runs to speedways.
Performance - superb, better when warm and higher speed the better

As i've posted before guys, if your suffering from dust on the front mags, coat them with a paint sealant. Will save you some frustration and time. Just wash em whenever you do the car.
Really works. My old man's 04 subaru wrx sti has brembo's all round which used to dust up all four wheels within two days but now take at least a fortnight before any dust appears.

Very true but you only have to put a couple coats on every 12 months and just wash with a mild car shampoo before washing the car
Anyway it's great having EBC's

Bendix advance are the best for low brake dust and their ok for everyday use. I found no difference between them and ultimates in braking efficientcy.
