Pad recommendation for an R52 Cooper?


Time to replace the pads all round on our 2005 R52 Cooper.

Ideally I'd like to achieve an "upgrade" without the added expense of changing calipers and discs - basically higher performance pads than the standard off-the-shelf items. Just for day to day road use.

What do people recommend?

I'd recommend EBC GreenStuff pads for street use, slightly better braking and lower dust than OEM pads.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs
