Armed with Phil1 warning that inner pads usually worse than the visible outer ones, yesterday furnished local kinda trusted indie with REAR pads, new rubber slider bits, and new rear wear sensor. Much as I have been told the slider pins are easily cleaned, the guy gladly lubed up new pins and rubbers, having cleaned out holes with rodent tail file. (Thanks James or Graham….great wee tip that.)
Help ma Boab…..old pins and rubbers, at 18k miles, were as dry and sticky as a camel’s jockstrap. Wear on outer pads was obvious but plenty left to not worry…..inner pads much thinner.
Out bedding in today……furrily recommend……braking marvellous with next to no dustfulness.

I wish wish I'd have gone for the green stuff instead of yellow stuff.

They do the job well in braking, but they've taken forever to bed in to the point of not squeeling despite numerous applications of copper slip on the backs.

To top it all off, they're making a right bloody mess of my wheels. I'm actually thinking of biting the bullet and chucking these even though they've only done 500 miles and getting the green stuff.

Spelling and grammar police here…should “squeeling” not have too “l’s”….LOL?.
I have EBC standard ones (Ultimax) on fronts…..totally adequate thus far, silent, and low dust as James says. Green ones haven’t been far enough to prove how “low dust” they are, but as said, feel great, but mibeez not worth price dirrifential from standard Ultimax…? Will never know now.…..but greenies going on front next time two.

The EBC website describes the various brake pad formulas in detail. Red Stuff are ceramic, the others are semi metallic.

Loads of info on the whole range of EBC pads (scroll the page down):

Yellow stuff are the only ones that don’t leave a residue on the discs. Unfortunately I can’t get them for the JCW.

Look, I haven't read that stuff. I'm just thinking that if the pads work in the same way as other brake pads work, there's going to be material, whatever that is, being shed in some form. So, if that isn't "dust", what is it?
Oh, while on this subject and for the growing number of EV drivers here, some food for thought . . . .
