Recommended Posts

Hi

I am looking for recommendations for some new brake disks & pads for my XF Sportsbrake 3D V6 (240).

The factory fitted have been OK but they are now worn and it is time to replace so what are others people's experience of what is available ? 

I have had a bit of look already and this kit for full replacement seems to be well rated:

 EBC Ultimax Pad & Plain Disc Kit PD40K965

But please enlighten me with other options or EBC if you rate them.

Many thanks

Marc

HI

They seem quite expensive

have a look on british car parts, good price and good parts https://www.britishparts.co.uk/

EBC seem very good, I changed my jaguar pads for EBC red stuff, because you dont get no brake dust of the red stuff, saves me cleaning my wheels every day

cheers

Joe

I use the EBC yellow stuff front and rear combined with Mintex disks, I can't see the advantage on a road car of fitting the more expensive EBC rotors as any I've removed have never been warped or had pressure cracks. Can only advise purchase from the pads from an official EBC supplier as with most expensive items these days the Chinese make fakes. Whether EBC are now supplying pads with the 'u' cut out to fit the wear sensor I don't know as the last set I purchase never had and complained to EBC because I had to use a disk grinder on 2 pads to cut the metal backing to accommodate the sensors. As Joe said there's a lot less dust, There again my style of wheels are easy to clean plus I have 20mm spacers fitted. My old set which are now fitted with winter tyres weren't so easy to clean whatever pads were fitted.
