Brakes

Hi guys,

Need to replace the disks and pads on the car, I'll be doing both the front and back.

Does anyone have any recommendations ? There are a load on ebay like this but I'm really not sure if i'd gain anything or not.

Thanks in advance

The pads are EBC but no mention of the disc manufacturer.

Instead I'd buy a known quality manufacturer of pads AND disc.

I would recommend Brembo Ep3 discs (front) and EBC Redstuff padstuff pads... and for the rear just get some cheap pagid discs and some ebc redstuff pads again... Perfect setup for fast road use and also for day to day

companys have got wise now to the whole front EP3 discs the same as FN2 as they are both now all the same price youll find, so just get the fn2 no need to confuse peeps anymore with this

brembo or mtec discs, ferodo ds2500 pads, all round, best setup .

fronts only!! , this used to be good because you would find dealers selling ep3 a lot cheaper then FN2 yet they where the same. as i prev said they are all wise now to this so youll find all priced the same so buying ep3 front discs/pads really isnt an advantage anymore.

I will be fitting redstuff pads with ebc discs on the rear at somepoint this week and i have a set of brembo discs waiting to go on the front, these will be match prob with yellowstuff when the pads are needing replacement. will let you now how they are.

The pads were £45 off ebay and the discs £46 so pretty cheap for hopefully good performance, better thean the £150+ for oem honda parts anyways

For 150GBP+ you can get Japanese top brake pads like ENDLESS MX72 or Project Mu HC+ which outperform DS2500 or EBC, but they cost, that's obvious. DS2500 creates tons of dust. I had lots of problems with them and got rid of them after ~2000km. Their compound is like 10 years old.

I'd rather get EBC / Ferodo for peace of mind!

Endless and Mu pads are vastly superior to the European pads .

Definitely trying a set after my blues are done

Do no other models use your caliper Lee. Most models in the same marque have shared parts even if not the same disc size

Weight is the key.

Less makes less strain on everything
