Title: Brake Pads - Reccomendations
Post by: barlidge on May 30, 2015, 12:22:11 PM
Brake pad light is on and just wondering which brands people prefer, Euro's offerings are Eicher, Pagid, Bosch, Textar or ATE.  A couple of those I've never heard of.  I would prefer performance over longevity as I tow a caravan.

Avoid Eicher - cheap rubbish ECP have branded with a german sounding name.

Pagid are fine, as are the other brands you mention.

I've used Pagid on my Gal and BMW with no issues and are reasonably priced. ATE are more expensive but possibly last longer.

ATE make a lot of the O.E stuff including many of the brake components factory fitted to the Galaxy so you shouldn't go wrong there, equally if you can get hold of Brembo- if you want performance then Brembo are synonymous with it!
