they'd be fine then IMO, I would hazard a guess that you do most of those miles a long way from ten tenths LOL

much kinder brake dust, and longer lasting discs with oem pads Smile

I would say mintex over ferodo Yes

BUT... ive put some greenstuff pads on the ST and what a bloody difference ! they stop all 1500kg's of it very quickly Shock
so much so id actually contemplate running the yellowstuff or ndx on the pug over the 1155 on there at the mo Yes
im actually really impressed with them.
Another bonus is the price Smile

DS2500's is my choice! If you do get these just make sure you heat cycle them when bedding them in, as per the instructions.

They really came into their own on track but initial bite when cold is still great, I do have grooved disks which may help this. Whenever I get back into my car after driving a company pool car it makes me realise how good the intial response from my brakes in teh 6 is. And visa versa when i first go to brake in a company car......they just dont bite.

As welsh said standards will suit your application fine. There is a hell of a lot of dust that comes off of DS2500s!

Yes I have just bought grooved discs all round, just deciding what pads.... I had green stuff, to be honest I didn't rate them, but I suppose on different cars they would work different ( weight ect)

i use standard Brembo disc's and standard Ferodo pads and they're great, i have customers who use them on track days and say they great too. I've use EBC a few times now and never got on with them, wouldn't recomend them.

Ant, what discs have you bought? I'm in the same position as you; looking at new discs n pads fairly soon; Ive been looking at EBC Ultimax Discs, and am considering spending out on DS2500 pads... convince me either way! Razz

They are yes (or at least used to be), but what you buy from a factor won't be the same compound they make for Peugeot.

Genuine OE pads are still hard to beat for a standard setup.

I swear by this setup to be eyeball wrenching 256+KgF on cold start up and they just don't seem to wear away at all even with driving up and down devon hills. I would not consider these if you are driving around town - go for standard.

The wear rate between DS2500's and EBC Ultimax Discs is a perfect match. I have them on the front and rear. Mark (sixysix) will testify to the stopping power. The grooves give a nice noise when breaking on the limit.

edit: I also use SRF break fluid and Goodridge flexi hoses. SRF is expensive but it lasts 18 months and is still less than half a tank of petrol. The wet boiling point is about as high as brake fluids go.

Really the pads need to balance the discs which in turn shouyld baloance the front suspension and tyres. If you got old suspension parts then putting on uprated pads/discs is only going to wear component faster. Also no point putting uprated brakes with poor tyres etc. It is all about balance of components.

If you got 10 year old suspension components stick to Standard OEM because the breaking curve will be far kinder to old components.

I might revert back to standard if I can not find a nice stiff sidewalled tyre on 195/55/15 ... I think a softsidewall like T-1R or PE2 might suit OEM ... where as a SO-2 much better with uprated.

NOW CAN SOMEONE HELP ME WITH MY BRAKE PROBLEM! LOL

Bit of a thread ressurrection, but ant, what mintex pads did you go for in the end; 44s or 55s? If you got the 55s, do you know how they compare to the 44s?

I've been convinced towards OEM brembo vented discs & 1144s for good fast road use...
