It's that time for us to replace our brake pads and i'm wondering what everyone is using?

We have almost no options in New Zealand, so i'm going to have to import them it looks like - the local EBC dealer wants about 40% more for the pads + a 5 - 6 week wait vs what i can buy them from Europe and have standard shipping and get them in a week / 2 weeks.

I've been contemplating the EBC Redstuff Ceramic pads as i ideally want something that's low dust and ideally low noise. The car is mainly used as a daily driver for my wife, so it doesn't get pushed that hard.

I've been using the Hawk HPS in my daily driver and i really like them but they don't make a pad for the RCZ as far as i know... otherwise i'd be grabbing those...

So what does everyone else use?

I’ve upgraded to black diamond drilled and grooved discs all round and use their pads that are perfectly matched to the discs. You can buy the pads separately though.

Yeah, i'm only looking at the pads at the moment as shipping disc's to NZ is killer!

I'll end up just grabbing the Brembo OEM disc's as it's basically all i can get here without stupid shipping costs.

We don't have Black Diamond over here and never heard of them before this site - whats peoples thoughts on them?
