terrible, they cracked and dropped to bits, yellow are a bit better, much better options out there than green stuff including stock.

They're really that bad? And will yellow stuff do the same? What would you recommend for a decent price? Don't want to pay too much

Regardless of cracking they are just *****.

Red or yellow are good, I'm liking the stoptechs at the moment.

when i replace mine i will go mintex m1144, (if available for the fn2) or ferodo ds2500, quite pricey compared to some. basic mintex might be fine but really it depends on your driving habits.

im sure others will have different preferences and will chime in soon

we have mintex on our 2.2 accord tourer, it doesnt get ragged about and they are fine. my R gets punished a bit more and cheaper pads suffer fade when hot so thats why i go for the m1144

The mintex on my 2.2 civic fade far too much, too quickly, what's decent for breaking force and better with heat, at a low budget

Greens should be renamed "Cabbagestuff". Absolute pants.

Reds are a little better, minimal dust, but Yellows are spot on. Excellent cold bite and get better the hotter they get. Loads of forum members use them. Mine never squealed, and I did several track days with them.

DS2500s are overpriced and have very poor cold bite, imo.

So yellow stuff is the best?

As said Ferodo's are expensive and personally I didn't rate them, I think I paid £40 ish for the stoptechs from ABP, although they may have been on offer.

Drop them a message.
