What pads are on the front?

I have Ferodo DS Performance rear pads, and DS2500 fronts. DSP are a slightly 'better' pad than OE spec (ie: higher temperature tolerance, stronger bite).

I guess you don't want a rear pad with much stronger bite than the fronts, cos I presume this could make the car unstable during heavy braking.

Regardless, rears do relatively little braking, and OE spec makes sense in most situations.
