    Sorry the pick is poor, has anyone bought the brembo pads from euro car parts? Are the OE spec?

    Cheers Matt

          a lot. in oem, not usual cheap brembo.

          i think oem similar to hp1000 brake pads (hp1000 same pads as ferodo ds2500).

              The normal pads from Vauxhall are around £300. I have just purchased the brembo hp2000 from Courtney's website for £140. These are the ones to go for. According to Courtney and regal these pads are basically exactly the same but are slightly updated. Don't buy cheap stuff

                  Cheers for all the replies guys I'm torn between DS2500 and the HP2000 pads price difference of 30 quid has any one used both sets of pads? I had DS2500 pads in my old ST AP's and they where awesome pads just wondered if the HP where near the same standard?

                    The DS2500 generally gets an awesome review so if it were me I'd be buying those for a difference of 30 quid

                        I've got the HP2000 in mine and still bedding in but so far so good. I'd recommend them!

                              FYI Ferrodo's annual price rise has just gone through and the J VXR DS2500 pad price has gone up nearly 10%. The rest of the range has only gone up by 1%!!!!!!
