    Default Would HIGHLY recommend OEM Pads

    Just changed my rear pads after Mark (3.2GSI) kindly pointed out i needed my rear pads changing asap. Well finally got around to getting them and police spec fronts , couldnt belive how easy they are to do!!!!!! I only had about 1mm of the friction material left
    Anyway as i was saying i had the aftermarket ones before and after fitting the oem ones i can feel the grip/bite already!! and they not even bedded in yet! Just waiting for the stealer to get my poilce spec pads in and ill be fitting them. still plenty of pad left on the fronts but cant wait any longer to try the spec pads?

    Oh and i couldnt find a re-wind tool so used long nose pliers, these worked gr8

    What pads did you use? just changed mine for Mintex and they grab far better than the original that were in.
