    Default EBC Brakes

    OK guys time for a moan about EBC Brakes.
    Would you Adam & Eve it if I tell you they advertise GreenStuff pads they don't even produce

    So as the story goes, ordered the pads Sat after the guy spent ages finding the part numbers in the EBC catalogue. Went to pick them up today. Was told they do not produce them yet as there not enough demand, and they don't know when they will produce.

    So come on all you 3.2 V6 guys, get to your local EBC supplier and give them hell. Maybe the guys at EBC HQ will then think there enough demand, and start to produce.

    Moan over.

    seems they may be in trouble with the advertising standard authourity if they found out

    The CAP Code - Rules

    AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS

    16.1
    Marketers must make it clear if stocks are limited. Products must not be advertised unless marketers can demonstrate that they have reasonable grounds for believing that they can satisfy demand. If a product becomes unavailable, marketers will be required to show evidence of stock monitoring, communications with outlets and swift withdrawal of marketing communications whenever possible.


    16.2
    Products which cannot be supplied should not normally be advertised as a way of assessing potential demand unless it is clear that this is the purpose of the marketing communication.


    16.3
    Marketers must not use the technique of switch selling, where their sales staff criticise the advertised product or suggest that it is not available and recommend the purchase of a more expensive alternative. They should not place obstacles in the way of purchasing the product or delivering it promptly.

    Perhaps I should Email EBC this demanding they supply me as advertised, just for a laugh.
    Will check which publication it was I saw them in tonight.

    Well I did Email EBC, but not with the ASA threat. Emailed their technical guys and got below reply. Transpiers my Signum has the later pads, and to even tho RedStuff recommended....they still don't produce. So still at square 1.

    we would recommend redstuff ceramic front and rear for this car

    they changed the front pads so need chassis code
    front is either
    dp31414c in stock or
    dp31416c not yet produced

    rear
    dp31354c in stock

    greenstuff is for small cars punto saxo fiesta etc not for 3.2v6
