Not Bendix Ultimates if you have the slightest interest in street manners.

Bendix Ultimates = alright, just a hell of a squeek and s**t of dust.... apparently my front pads are worn down to 25% left, i think i might give the EBC Greenstuff pads a go next..

Bendix Ultimates are good if your on a track caning them, but 95% of my driving is on the street, where the amount of squeal they make is embarrassing and the dust covers my wheels within 20km of them being cleaned.

I'm using the midrange Ferodos, don't remember part number or any of that crap but I'm really happy with the way they perform mated to the DBA slotteds all round

I wacked in a set of ferodo zero brake pads fron super cheap and must admit I'm happy with them, no noise nice pedal feel and stop well. Only down side I found that I need to rekit the calipers as they were seized which is another good excuse for more beer this weekend.

Ive got bendix GT2 with slotteds, and they pull up really good, but do squeal excesively. Dust is no problem at all, in fact its less than the ferrodo, and FAR less than the Bosch.

From what Ive read, Ill be using EBC, either red or green next time around.

ive got Bosch brake pads and they are f**k s**t. the noise that comes from them is friggin ear piercing and embarrasing, and my mags that were once silver are now a dirty brown grey colour.

i clean my mags every week but its not worth it because they just get dirty again from brake dust in like 2 days.
