Yes they are Way. There's info on the main forum somewhere. Do you want to part with your old brakes? I may look at rebuilding a set down the road.

Was at the track last night and I'm pretty impressed with the Ferodo DS2500 and Castrol SRF fluid. Was only doing 3 flying laps at a time and it would start to fade slightly but ALOT better than stock.

Any noises from the pad? how long you had them? I'm keen to try them but worry about the pads eating my rotors.

Only been in there two days so too early to tell. But right now they are quiet, couple of minor squeaks but no worse than stock. In fact they feel better than stock at low speed, they don't have the same graininess and grinding feeling. Will keep you updated.

Thanks Adin, I don't think you'll be disappointed. The car is certainly a lot more talented than I am haha.

Front pads are still good and also dust a whole lot less than stock.
However the rear pads are now randomly squealing fairly often, and they clunk when going first taking off or going from reverse to drive.
Any tips for fixing this? Otherwise I might put the stock rears back in.

I have read that the clunking noise you are experiencing is an issue with those pads.

Did you replace the fronts and rears?

How are they holding up and what is your impression on the street?

How long do they take to warm up?

I did front and rears.
I'd think about just doing the fronts. Clunking is not a big deal but the rears are squealing a lot now, nearly all the time. Haven't had a chance to try re bedding them yet.
On the street they feel great, stop like oem from cold but if you heat them up they just get better.
