Quick an easy 325ci Brake pad question???
I have an 02 325ci that it's only job in life is my work/delivery car. I put on about 600 "delivery" miles per week on the car. I wear down brake pads very quickly. I currently am running oem stock pads and rotors.
All day, every day I speed up very quickly and jump on the brakes over and over for 12 hours at a time.............."BUT" never at high speeds maybe 40mph maximum.
What I am search for in a brake pad is this:
*Hardcore, aggressive, firm, strong, initial brake grab at very low speeds with minimal brake pedal pressure (I hate having to stand on my brake pedal)
*the less brake dust the better. (brake dust is NOT a huge deal for me) initial brake pad bite is.
*Quite, noise free operation. No cold squeaks or squeals
I was leaning towards EBC Red Stuff but do they have EXCELLENT initial bite without much pedal pressure??? I'm not sure.
I'm very happy with my PFC Z compounds. They dust very little and together with stainless lines and Motul fluid bite very nice. It's been about 2 years or more as well and the pads themselves are in great shape and last time I checked looked to have about 75% life left. Occasionally I get a tiny squeak here and there, but it comes and goes depending on what streaks I hit in the pads and how I drive.
Any ceramic should dust less, look into the Akebono's since they seem to have good reviews and are pretty affordable. It's all up to your preference.
bump for info on ebc red stuff?
