What brake pads?

Have a look on Euro car parts, enter your Reg No, then click on performance & it should give you the correct fitment. I've put EBC Greenstuff on mine which have a better feel than stock in normal use and less fade/ more bite when pushing it a little. Also once bedded in create a lot less brake dust on the wheels!

Eurocarparts are listing 2 sizes 😑

No they are braking systems according to the spec of the pads. They also have different brands like Brembo etc. The difference between the systems seems to be size and one type is a solid pad and the other has a split in the middle.

whilst I have bought from eurocarparts on many occasions I do find their prices a little high for brake pads. You will be able to get them between 15-20 quid including postage on ebay. Although I am not making any comment on the quality of different brands. On some you get a fitting kit with them. some you don't . It is unlikely you would really need the fitting kit on a car of your age.

Be careful of fakes on eBay - it is rife with them for many branded car parts. Difficult to work out in advance which they are though so this  is where an established bricks-and-mortar retailer can be beneficial, even if they might be slightly more expensive.

ECP are like DFS with a seemingly endless sale so try not to buy on the rare occasion when there isn't one on! Also, carparts4less.co.uk are the same company, just trading online only, and so tend to be a fair bit cheaper (pretty much ECP sale prices but all the time e.g. the Pagid pads shown above are £46.99 at ECP and only £31.68 at CP4L).

Guys I'm asking what braking system it would be not about price. Thank you though. The pictures are only a guide as everywhere I have looked quote both types of breaking system and no one says front pads for rear drum breaks.

I watched a TV program recently on fakes.   One of the items listed was fake brake pads being sold on eBay.   One set they tested were more or less useless.   For something as important as brake pads, I don't mind paying a bit extra to make sure I get the right gear.

Not just ebay, euro car parts and Eicher pads! they should come with a grinder in the box to help make them fit! absolute garbage that shouldn't be allowed.

It's those ones mate, the other type are only fitted to the ST hence the bigger size. Hope it helps. 

And while we are on it, £34.99 from ECP! :ohmy: Jesus! We sell them out at roughly 20 quid a set! 

As mentioned Eicher pads are absolute rubbish, the same can be said for the disks as well look like they've been knocked up in a garden shed. Problem is the all the Eicher stuff is coming out of India and quality control is... Well I don't think they have any :laugh:

Just to update,

Fitted Brembo pads, much better. Discs could do with changing but i'll be part exing the car pretty soon so don't know if it's worth it. Perform a lot better than the standard ford ones that were on there.
