    Default New brakes time any advice

    Hi all,

    Just recently had my baby serviced and all good but brakes are coming close to needing to be replaced, any advice on best way to go. I've seen the Green stuff pads advertised, are they any good?

    Stick with OEM pads, best compromise between wear rate and stopping distance IMO.
