Try asking Philip at Alfashop - he normally knows these things. He may be able to supply them and thus save you the postage.

Need to make sure they are the right ones, a lot of the sportspack cars had Lucas calipers instead the usuals ones and need different pads.

:p That 565 fitment is used on some old Lancia's(Delta & Thema) as well,MSW have them listed but it might be wise to ring them if you've got an unusual fitment for the model.
:cool: Are they worth the money.........YES,My 155 suffered from brake fade quite badly on standard pads,quite frightening at times :eek: Once I put the DS2500's in they were transformed,the car stopped in a much more controlled manner and I never cacked myself fearing I would "run out of pedal" again :)


.......... :p I still sold it though,hahaha :eek:

Just an Update on the DS2500.
Great pads now that they have bedded in, good initial bite, fantastic when hot and smoking!!
Much better than the Red Dot fast road that went all crumbly and cracked....
The 565 fitment was correct for the Lucas Caliper, listed Q4 on the box and Thema 8.32.
Bought them from SCA in Norwich, bit of a Max Power Chimp shop but managed to haggle an Ok price.

Are these pads alot better than the standard? are they worth there hefty price tag?
Oh yeah !!!!

I've got them all round on the V6 (bought the car with them). They are something else. When cold the brakes are great, after a couple of hefty stops, they haul the car to a stop really quickly. The V6 will easily outbrake my Silverstone which has Brembo 10 groove discs and Red Dot pads. The V6 has standard discs aswell BTW !!!!

Alfajack, my V6 has the Girling Calipers but I don't know the part numbers of the Ferodo's. A decent set of front discs will cost about £100.

I went to Halfords part desk and asked them about 155 pads, told them year and model, I looked in thier FERODO parts catalogue at the pics of the pad outline and got them to get a set off the shelf, to have a look at pad backing plate shape and pad shape, from this I found the pad type I needed then I went and ordered them from SCA. (The FERODO pads have the same application code for each pad compound type) so the 565 bit of the FCP 565 2500 code refers to the application.
Thats how I worked it out, but it probably would be best to ask a specialist if you are not sure, then order from the cheepest source knowing the correct code.
