    left and right is as your sitting in the car - i.e. drivers side is right...

    Not wanting to be the party pooper - but just go easy on the greenstuff pads until you are happy with how they perform.

    I take it they are going on a vec... trouble with Greenstuff on a heavy car like the vec is that they can get quite hot and then they have been known to fade..

    They are defo better than OEM, just dont expect them to be up to track style breaking etc..

    I talk from experience having tried green, red and yellow stuff pads on a multitude of cars - the one being most like the Vec being my Saab 9000 Aero (all be it 362BHP of her!)

    For me - yellows were by far the best all round.. EXCELLENT cold performance - miles better than OEM, and I couldnt get them to fade on a track day either so best of both.

    As I say the will be great for 'fast road', just get used to them thats all

    Oh, and be prepared to wash your wheels twice a week with Greens (and grooved discs)
