    I'm need to replace my standard brake pads - are there any recommended non Merc brands?

    I notice Ferodo and Mintex are readily available.
    Sonething that produces less dust would be nice!

    You could go for a ceramic compound; EBC "Redstuff" is the first one that comes to mind (mainly because someone else on here has recently fitted them).

    How hard to you drive? That's ultimately the deciding factor in which pads to buy.
    Using EBC's line-up again; "Bluestuff" is really only for track work (excellent fade resistance, but you have to get them up to temperature before they start working properly), whereas "Yellowstuff" is meant for "fast road and track". I'm not entirely sure where "Green" and "Red" fit in.

    I've heard good things about Carbotech too.

    Thanks, yes I'd forgotten about Carbotech.

    I don't drive hard, but do alot of A road driving, so after a couple of days my front wheels are covered in dust.

    No one else used anything but Merc pads?
