Default Brake pads

I've managed up until now to always have some MGR OEM parts in stock but my recent search (especially for the non-SPL suffix kits) has so far come up empty! The MOT advisory has suggested the rear pads need replacing (not as critical as the front) so, who were the original suppliers for MGR (all the old stock stuff I had were marked 'Made in Germany'?). I've seen what Rimmers have on offer and going onto the internet there is a mind boggling selection of pattern/secondary market manufacturers out there - Blueprint are Honda, Borg & Beck, TWR and Delphi were all associated with the old company but who am I best choosing for my next set of pads?

There's plenty of good brands to chose from, as they also fit the BMW Z4, Saab 9-5 and the BMW 3 series
The Calipers are made by ATE so their pads are good as are TRW, Febi and Blueprint.

Yes they do. Strangely enough l've just been looking at them, came on here to look for opinions & found this thread in the new posts list.

I used to use EBC on my motorbike, stopped well.
If you do fit EBC, please do a thread on which ones you fitted and how well they work.

I have EBC Red Stuff pads on my ZT-T190 and they are excellent.
They stop well and wear well and don't produce too much dust.
No complaints!

I'm only thinking of changing due to an annoying low speed squeal from the rear once the pads have warmed up. I had to do an emergency stop last week & with the new tyres & the revived ABS the stopping power was impressive. But the dust from the fronts is annoying too. There are many cheap alternatives available but after the suspension refurb l'm tempted to spend a bit more on a good set of pads.
THE EBC pricing structure is a bit annoying though as it looks like they price per pair rather than per axle set. Who replaces one wheel set at a time?

I only fit Pagid brake pads. If they are good enough for Aston Martin, they are good enough for me .

It sounds like a good recommendation, do you know that for sure?
