    Have just bought some Ferodo Premier pads and about to install them after I get my discs machined as their glazed. Do I need to bed in the Pads? And if so how would I do it? Have seen some articles on how to bed in DS2500 pads but I have Premiers so do they need to be bedded in also? Thanks...
  5. Ferodo DS2500 FCP565H - correct for 2002 V6?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just had my new discs and Ferodo DS2500 pads delivered and I'm not sure if I've got the right pads. They're to go on a 2002 model GTV V6 3.0, and I understand it should have Brembo callipers as standard. The part number for the pads I've been sent is FCP565H but FCP721H is also coming up the...
  6. Ferodo DS2500 + Tarox grooved - dont

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just a tip if you doing the GTA brake upgrade, and I suspect even if you arent but are putting on Tarox grooved discs. I did this and put Ferodo DS2500 pads on as everyone seems to say these are the absolute best on the market. That may be the case, but I tried it and they scream like a banshee...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hey guys, how do you bed in your pads when you change them at a meet? You can’t drive around for 300 miles lol. It takes me about 3 - 4 weeks to bed in standards pads, I only use my car once a week and drive correctly on the motorway and don’t need to use my brakes, except when coming off...
