Thumbs up Finally I did it, and it feels so good!!!



Well as some of you may know for last 2 weeks my car was shaking like a mofo, because my left caliper was seized.
Today I changed my brake pads and rotors.
Front - Euro Spec M3 OEM Rotors with EBC GreenStuff pads and
Rear - OEM M3 Rotors with EBC GreenStuff pads.
I feel so damn good, no more shaking, my car finally rolls on hills again!!!! And the best thing, no more brake dust!!! wooohooo

Hey sick, when u say no more brake dust, is that because of the EBC Greenstuff pads you installed. if so, can i just purchase the pads to eliminate the brake dust. also, are the pads as good as OEM.

i hate the friggin' brake dust!!!!

Thanks.

Shamis, all rotors, all brakes and labour was a bit under a grand.

Bill Gates, yes EBC Green got no dust. Well they do but much more less than stock pads. I drove for 2 days, about 300km, no dust at all.

Look into PBR Metalmasters or PBR Delux pads. They are good pads and an even better price! I paid $30 for the Metalmasters (didn't need the Delux street/track pads...think they were only $52) for my '73 2002 at Elite Auto Service.

Euro floating rotors won't fit on his car without an M3 brake conversion.
