Has anyone tried these brake pads on their 156s or 147s? How are they? There are a few sets available and I thought I might give them a try since my rear pair are somewhat worn out.

Motorquality Site

They are Brembo distributor, but these are not "Brembo" branded pads, I think. Anyone know if Brembo makes brake pads for 156/147?

No luck (yet) on finding those Ferodo DS2000. Is that a high-performance grade? I think we may only have the OEM-grade Ferodo pads here. rant

Fredrik is giving some DS2500's a whirl on his GTA, which are a new pad for heavier cars. These should suit the Alfas very well!!
:D

Why can't a Ferodo dealer bring them in for you specially??

Motorquality sounds like a real misnomer.

Usually if a word such as 'quality' is in the title/name it usually can be translated as 5hyte.

.....unless you are talking about Quality Street chocolates which came from another era without discount/shoddy products wink

I have a friend who runs a car care business chain, he couldn't find them from Ferodo. rant

Can you import them privately??
Then you are not involving any one from the trade??

Personally I think that pretty much everything I say on this forum is pertinent and helpful, apart from the odd hilarious comedy aside. It's everyone else that say I'm always going off-topic. :( :D

Julian, I take my cars to the Sukhumvit branch (Thai Prestige). There are fewer cars there, and they take good care of the cars. If you need further directions, PM me. wink I'm running low on rear brake pads, I thought I might take my car in soon.

Thought I'd drop a note here on these Motorquality Red Attack pads. I've been running them in (front and rear) for about 350km so far. They're getting better and better but not quite to a level I like yet.

Initially the pedal was soft and the car didn't stop so well. Now the pedal is firmer, and the car slows down quicker with more confident. It's still not up to where the last set of pads was (Magnet Marelli), but may be 200-300km more, things will be in place. wink
