    Wow, that’s not a lot of mileage for a set of pads.

    Exactly the same for me.

    Utter rubbish

    The hot debris off the pads ruined the finish on the wheels.

    WHAT??   600 miles?  they must be a faulty batch surely? or track use? I put a set in the daily Fiesta and they are fine, no squeaking, low dust.



    No nothing.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    May be worth checking these are genuine Brembo pads, it’s amazing how counterfeit parts can sometime get into the supply chain even from the most respected manufacturers.

    May be worth giving Brembo a ring, especially if you have batch number.

    Counterfeight goods can be very,very difficult to identify visually, often it’s a laboratory job.

    If the standard pads are Brembos in the Brembo calipers they smoke really bad when very hot, wear to date looks OK on mine but all are different.
