Just went on EBC website and for my car they can do Greenstuff Brake Pads and Grooved Disc as an upgrade for my car. Are these any good??

Cheers

Which are the best pads for low dust? Tbh anything will be an improvement over stock, but the thing that's bugging me the most is my nice painted calipers getting filthy within hours of washing the car lol.

I have very little brake dust with the EBC yellowstuff pads, even with spirited brakeing. A lot less than when I had the greenstuff pads before.

Yellows or reds ?

The yellows are more of a track pad but work well on a heavy derv.
For the 1.8 or FN2 I would have suggested ds2500 as a better fast road pad.
Not for the diesel though..... although no doubt they are very good.

There is a couple of guys on here that have tracked with both and agree the yellows outperform the ds2500s, but the ds2500s work instantly, the yellows need some heat into them to be at their best.

I think Greenstuff is more than adequate for road use - don't need to be warmed up before they grip - very little dust ...

Having said that, I've not tried the DS2500 - I might just 'dabble' when the front pads need changed (I already have a spare set of Greenstuff fronts in my garage) ...

Yeah I'm probably never going to take my derv on a track, so just need something that's good for road use and emits less dust than the OEM pads.

So, green or yellow, if I'm going EBC?

If you are not pushing it too hard ds2500 for the diesel.
If you do wring its neck occasionally then yellows.
Only because the ds work better stone cold.

800c Yellows required the 800c GD disks to go with.
DS2500 & Green stuff can go with any 650c setup.

All are better than OEM.
Greenstuff is supposed to be lowest dust.
