  1. GTV V6 - Ferodo DS Performance Pads

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had a bit of trouble obtaining some FDS721's for my V6 GTV :cry: After speaking to the nice man at brakes4u it turns out that the FDS1348's designed for the Ford Focus RS are the same shape and fit the front 4 pot Brembo's perfectly :thumbs: The only difference being they are about 1.5mm...
  2. Ferodo DS2500 brake pad upgrade

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, I complained about my spongy brake pedal feel to my local Alfa specialist (GT 1.9 smokey joe). They have replaced the caliper pipes with braided stainless steel and this has improved it significantly. However, they said to get better stopping I should upgrade to Ferodo DS2500 pads. Has...

  4. Bedding In Ferodo DS Performance Pads

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just been reading the bedding in instructions that came with my Ferodo DS pads. They are the same as the instructions that came with the DS2500 pads I had in my previous 156; 'Perform 25 to 30 trial brake applications, each of approximately 4 seconds, using around 50% of normal race...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Does anybody know the part number for the ferodo brake pads (DS2000 or DS 2500) for my Alfa GT 1.8. The alfa GT is not even listed in the official Ferodo website thus the reason for my thread here. Thanks in advance
  6. Anyone Using Ferodo DS Performance Pads On The Front Of A 156?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I’m going to change the front discs and pads on the front of my 156 in the next week or so and was wondering, will Ferodo DS Performance pads offer much of an improvement over standard? I had Ferodo DS2500 pads on the front of my previous 156 and found them a little ‘harsh’.
  7. Ferodo DS2500 front brake pads

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm not sure if I am allowed to do this, so if not then please could a moderator not only delete the message but send me a message to say that it is not allowed (not PM as this doesn't work for me on this site). I know a lot of people could use these, but they may never look in the classified 4...
  8. The solution to squealing ferodo DS2500

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After i installed my ferodo DS2500 pads, i was getting lots of squealing on low speed braking. In town cruising it was very embarasing. I've read lots of articles on the web and i found many tricks. So yesterday i removed my pads and i filled down the leading edge of the caliper to form a...

  10. Online Ferodo brake supplier

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm looking at either DS2500 or DS performance front pads. I know a lot of people use motorsport, but they seem about 15-20 quid more on the pads. Who else do you guys use?

    General Alfa Discussion
    So, need new front brake pads. I'm after getting some Ferodo DS2500s for my 156, problem is I can't seem to find anywhere that allows me to buy online? Also, not many places show the 2.4JTD as an option. Does anyone know if my car shares its brake pads with the 2.0 TS/JTS, or the 2.5 V6? Any...

    Have been reading here for hours and the concensus seems that these are the pads of choice, only I can't find a single stockist of them online anywhere. Does anyone have a link for a stockist? I'm looking for 147 GTA pads on 305's. Stu

  16. Ferodo DS2500 pads

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone else use Ferodo DS2500 front pads to beef up the brakes on a 156? I have them on the fronts (EBC Greenstuff on the rears - Ferodo don't do rears for a 156 JTS) with standard discs but they drive me round the bend with their low-speed squealing, it sounds like I'm bringing a 20 year old...

  19. Pagid, Brembo and Ferodo brake pads for GTA 330mm/GT/166

    Alfa GTA
    Following on from discussion about this a while back, I thought I'd post the results of some searching. If you've got a GTA with the later 330mm brakes, then hardly any sites list your car. From seeing that the Ferodo DS2500 part numbers for the GTA 330mm and the Evo 8 are the same, I found the...
  20. Pagid vs Ferodo- which and where to buy?

    Alfa GTA
    With the Doni trackday less than two months away I need to get some new front pads for the GTA (330mm brakes). I've never liked the feel of the standard pads - they can fade, and they can give a weird poor response from cold sometimes which feels like fade. I've always loved the feel of Pagids...
