Thanks Damianc4s, I have used "performance braking" in the past the cheapest I have found in the UK, I must have a look at buying from US, since the pound is strong at the moment. are there any companies that you could suggest/recommend ?

Is 169.68 for a set of Blues Inc delivery a good price?

(Bear in mind there the bigger pad for the turbo brakes)

for the 993 and most 996's the Blue and next step up Oranges Pagid's are fine, for the price at least 350 a set+ I would say no but they should last a year or longer and hopefully the next 10k miles



smtk, that's a good price, the RS42 I assume ? but remember you need shims



as it's 350+ for a RS29 for a GT3

yep this is whats sitting in my shopping basket

PGD-E1842-RS42 Pagid Pads - RS4-2 Front 162.18

from motorsportworld.co.uk

I think i'll get the shims from eurocarparts and some very light weight sand paper to clean up the disks and would a rear set be wise?

BTW would you PM how much sid charged to change your pads? If you dont mind that is.

Simon, I've found pagid blues RS4-2 for 130 odd quid for mk1 GT3 big reds - your turbo reds shouldn't be any bigger than mine?

Edit - that's pre vat & postage right enough

PerformanceBraking.com

131.16+vat & del. Was the best quote I could find for these pads in the UK.

I'm torn between these and OEM from Design911 at the mo.
