          quote from the site

          Redstuff however as a harder compound does take longer to fully bed in to achieve its highest levels of performance (can be up to 1500 miles/2500 Kms urban use) during which time the odd "Chirp" of brake noise may be heard when starting from cold in damp and cold conditions at walking pace speed. One press of the pedal to clear the rotor of any dampness and this disappears to leave EBC Redstuff a pad that inspires confidence in all cars. The motto is be patient give the pads a full chance to bed down.

            Having just read Ebc write up about these pads it says they ae better from cold than OE brakes, so either you are very wrong or they are.

                Again i can only go by what EBC themselves say, and that The Blue stuff pads are aimed at Heavier vehicles. And Yellow are for Road/Track

                  Redstuff is only available for heavier and faster CARS and does find its self at its best on slightly heavier cars or Truck and SUV applications. Selecting the right grade of EBC pad for you car, truck or SUV is important and you can see the entire EBC selection and how to choose the right brakes for your car by switching to this linked page.

                      Well they must be available for lighter cars aswell as i wouldnt have been able to buy them!!!!!! I guess is all down to preference or which ones you have fitted. They seem bloody good to me, just squeek akot still, but they will get better apparently.

                        aint saying they are wrong, just possibly the yellows might have been more appropiate

                              Yellow Stuff pads are more suited to track use and they are the ones you need to be careful with and get some heat into them. Red Stuff should be good on the corsa I would have thought, good choice!

                              All vaux breaks squeak, to do with the caliper design as much as the pad compound, its quite annoyin tho.
