I am sure you will like them Ben.
I just ordered another customized set with max pad thickness for the GTS rotors, which are 2 mm smaller than the OEM Brembos.

Eugene, I need the specs of your rotors for that.
Do you have the Brembo pad numbers maybe? Basically you can get the pads in every thickness you want

Hey VENDORS...

PM me please for replacement pads for Brembo 380 GT kit.

I know it came with Ferodo pads and looking to replace with the same pads as they are great for both street and track.

What sucks is so many vendors sell the Brembo BBK's but not replacement pads... The ones I have PM'd tell me they don't sell them.

The endless are way too expensive unless they actually last 3 times longer than the OEM pads seeing as they cost 3 times more.

Why not just order Ferodo DS2500? I have used them for dual purpose duty on my E46 M3 with Brembos and they were great.

Those were the OEM pads that came with the kit. I just haven't found a vendor to buy them from.

I actually LOVE the Ferodo DS2500's. They lasted me about 9 or 10 track days and about 20k street kms's.

I had the Ferrodo DS2500s also. They did last 5000km track and DD. Nice pads for track and DD, but they do not last long. Compared to that, my Endless are 10000km old now and have about 50% left.

They are actually made for endurance races in compound MA45B.
I would say you can compare them to RS29s, but they last about 70-100% longer. I use them also as a DD. BTW - I have my spare Brembo BBK set left, if you need a set

The DTCs never ended up being in stock so I just ordered Ferodo DS3000s for the front and DS2500s for the rear. Ill see how I like the 3000s on my next track day.

Hello,

have you tested these pads yet? I read the DS3000s are not suitable for street use. Do you swap pads before tracking the car or will you give it a try anyways? Looking forward to your review!

Cheers,

Christian

Looks great! Still going back and forth w/ Brembo GT vs Stop-Tech. My last track day convinced me I need an upgrade from stock.

Have a blast w/ those beauties!

Nice! Love this thread as it's helping me decide on Brembo vs ST (pad swapping now becoming a more prominent plus for latter, but love look of the B'bos).

Since I hate making new threads when there is already a good one going, I am in the market for pads and wondering what the current stance is regarding them. I have a set of Pagid RS29s but am reading that they will be too noisy (aside from what user Stalker has experienced) for street use. Trying to get a set on the way to me tomorrow, so any insight would be great.
