    EBC green stuff for me, only for the reason that they only give off a little dust, a massive improvement on standard pads. Also they were very good in the stopping department too imo.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    and what I use.

    I wouldn't touch Red Stuff with a bargepole. From another member's comments, they're crap when cold - not what you want when you first set off in the morning.

    i've had mintex on a car once and they went crap. when they where replaced found they where cracked

    used to set fire to my old nissan standard pads.
    got home from work every night and they'd be smoking.

    had greenstuff on the old vec b and they where spot on.

    and as said, heared the police spec ones are good but dusty.
