EBC Greenstuffs are alright, although they are a bit dusty, they were noisy for the first week, but are quiet as now.
i am running them with some DBA 4000 6x6 wiper slots.

Make sure that you get the rotors machined. The brakes WILL develop a shudder within a few thousand km's if you dont.

Slotted doesn't mean more dust though!
I have slotted with bendix advance and almost no dust.
I used to get major dust ups with regular pads and ultimates.

im not sure if lucas/TRW have been mentioned, but they have a higher temp rating than the bendix ultimates and are cheaper. not much, but are cheaper.
However, as with any good braking pad, lots of dust.

Lucas are the pads fitted standard to europeans, bmws, astras, etc.. and they all do some stopping.

Cheers
David

They can, but most places don't have the right machine to do it (most use a spring loaded cutter, this is bad when it gets stuck in a slot/hole).

I was told RDA are made in china and aren't painted giving them a rusted look over time. I have RDA discs in the rear with some bendix pads. They seem to do the job but I think it may need replacing.

Front are DBA and they work great. Have bendix ultimate pads on it and it squeals like a mofo. So I might try another pad whenever the pad starts to wear out.

phong =P~

tried RDA and Ferodo really really not a fan for the money you save it isnt worth it in my opinion so i went to BEndix SRT nd DBA slotted never looked back little dust and if you knew how hard it is to clean my mags you would also appreciate it :D , no squeals only after ive washed it for about a minute. And lastly they do get noisy when hot but like a humming noise when braking hard, lol hard to explain. Like i say each to their own, at the end of the day everyone has a different experience with different products.
