    Vehicle : 9-3 Wagon

    Trim : Turbo Edition

    Engine : TID (1.9 16v)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 137000

    Default Green stuff or Red stuff?

    Car done 28k so its time to start thinking about break pads. The VX pads seem to give up the ghost with just a little bit of work so would like to try a better pad. So what do you guys think, RED or GREEN stuff?

    Do the police pads only fit the gsi, or can you get them to fit my little sri brakes, could be another option?
