    Hi everyone, I’m after some advise or opinions as to what brake pads to fit to my C55. My original front & rear pads have nearly worn out & need replacing. I've done a couple of light track-days in my car this year & plan to do some more next year, therefore I am considering a performance replacement set but..... I’ve no idea what make or company to look at?? Can any C55 owners give me any advice.....?:dk:

    Thanks.

    Standard pads are pretty good but avoid EBC as they fit poorly.

    Ferrodo do a set of track/fast road pads that have a great reputation.

    Pagid RS4 - 2 are highly recommended they are used on all carbon disc equipped ferrari and porsche road cars and evo mag have fitted them to a lamborghini and are amazed at the difference.

    Ive got EBC Reds and as Olly said they fit poorly, a little modification and once fitted they are good pads(once worn in), alot less dust too.

    Akenbo`s is what the US guys veer towards, but i havent found them in the UK.
