Carbone Lorraine pads

I have a set of these in the 156 by god they are unreal pads they will literally throw you through the window if you brake heavy with them but at slow speeds my lord do they make some racket But they are also practically dust free too which is great as the old Ferodo's I had were something terible for dust.

I have these discs too on it

The black edition ones. Great discs and cheap and came to the door of the house within 3 days of ordering class

Were yours Ferodo DS2500 ?

Need new pads soon, I've always used DS2500 and thought they were the best ?

I will be ordering a set of discs from Mtec Brakes at the end of the month. They supply Mintex pads as part of the package or Ferrodos for a few more pounds. I will be asking them to send me just the discs as I fancy giving EBC Greenstuff pads a go. I think the price for pads and discs (with the black coating) is circa £183. Amazing vfm imo

The pads were just Ferodo standard pads I had them before on the 146 and they were very good to be honest but they may have been a bad batch or something that I got cos they where crap to be honest.

I have the black coating on mine Leitrim they are very good. Buddy of mine has the set up want on a 530D and the brakes are immense. For the price I can't fault the Mtecs at all.
