Hi guys,

My 2.2 5dr is in need of new pads in about 1000 miles.

It is currently all OEM and the pads were changed about 15000 miles ago tops and I am told by the mechanic who looks after my car that they need changing soon.

My query is, is there an alternative that I should be using instead of the OEM pads? I'm not looking to change anything else at present and not really demanding anything particularly high performance or anything just looking to see if there is something a bit better that I should be using?

Thanks in advance!

EBC Greenstuff produce slightly less dust and last longer than OEM I had them on for 25000 miles before changing to yellowstuff and they had plenty left on them.

That sounds pretty good mileage compared to my OEM pads. How would you describe your driving style on those?
I do a fair amount of long motorway drives but a lot around town as well and even though I wouldn't say I hammer the brakes, I dont drive like miss daisy either :D

They are fine for normal driving but can fade if you drive like a hooligan!

I love the yellowstuff I have on now, this is my second set. They are fine cold, get better when warm don't fade if you give them some. The brake dust is bad though.

For normal driving, I'd say - EBC Greenstuff - cheaper than OEM (and use the Civinfo discount code), better performance, and less brake dust ...

I have them on all 4 wheels. Braking is slightly better, brake dust is WAY better.
