which pads would you recommend in price range better than EBC?
I have bendix general pads on with dba slotted rotors, don't have any build up on the rotor but do need some new pads now. Was leaning towards the EBC or Bendix heavy duty/ultimate? Any others?



QFM better pad for cheaper price.


Absolutely can attest to the QFM pads - good price and great wearing pad.

As for the EBC's - I think the ricer sling is a bit harsh. My mini has the EBC Blacks and have had no issues with them. They are way better than the Quentin Hazel ones or the AP ones coming out of the UK. I had the EBC's on the Falcon and didn't like them as they have to be at temperature to work properly, hence the change to the Blacks. Going down the Clyde you get the Greens hot as hades, then you warp your discs; however, the mini just eats up the road and no sign at all of fade on the 7.5 inch discs. I think you have to be wary of some of the hype with the pads but try them and see for yourself.

Hooroo

QFM A1RM or EBC REDSTUFF.
Both tried and tested on my car. Both Excellent brake pads.
Off-cause use DBA T2 slotted or EBC slotted and dimpled rotors.
