Aftermarket brake pads?

Recommended Posts


Has anybody experimented with aftermarket brake pads?

I am currently using the original ones from Porsche and they have done very good at the track and during daily driving. However, the dust A LOT!!

I was wondering if there is something out that that:

1) brakes better

2) gives a better brake feel

3) do not squeaks as much

4) last but not least, does not DUST AS MUCH

What about that Green Stuff or BHP?

Comments, ideas?

I changed out my front and rear pads, with the frount I went with Pagid street pads (Black) versions.

These were purchased from http://www.the-best-source.com/ for a wapping $113 a set.

The rear pads I went with Porsche stock brand through Suncoast Motorsports www.e-partssales.com for 94.41 per set.

All and all with about 5000 miles on these pads seem to be performing well. The condition of the brake disc is what will really help make your pads last if you change them out if they are questionable. The cost of Brake disc's has really come down in price, I picked up a set of zimmerman cross drilled rotor for the front for like $105 each.

The after market rotors are same as the stock ones from Porsche with the exception of the Rotor Hat not being painted, which I painted my self. Porsche paints the rotor hat so the rust doesnt show being just bare metal.

I picked thes up at http://www.eurowebparts.com/default.asp?ur...che/default.htm for like clost to $105 ea. for the fronts.

Good luck what ever you decide, the most determing facotr is how much track time you will really have, because if you only track the car once or twich a year the extra money for race pads is a waste. Just one guys opinion.
