i've got akebono pads fitted on the front last year. it's almost dustless..., and yet bites well for daily usage. my rear wheels are on oem bmw and the wheels looks disgusting compared to the front.

i've got ebc redstuff on my suv, which is suppose to produce less dust, but the akebono is better at it. not sure about braking performance since i adhere to speed limit plus it's a different car

Firstly, MASSIVE shout out to the guys at Active Motorwerke. They priced out SouthernBM by quite a large amount for the installation of my brakes.

As for the mention about noisy brakes, I'm definitely a happy punter as I've had to deal with my wheels squeaking for over a year now but now that my brakes are replaced, the squeaking sound's GONE!!!

Fingers crossed, it stays this way.

Nope. COMPLETE replacement. I decided to replace ALL 4 rotors and ALL 4 brake pads.

Moral of the story: If your brake pads wear thin, STOP driving! lol.

Have you guys found the car computer to be accurate re when you need to get the brakes done? Mine still says 20k or so to go but I feel as though they are already on their way out.

Nash - did you have to replace the brake sensor or was that something you just decided to do? Cheers.

I've found it to be pretty accurate. However, bear in mind that the sensors only detect when your brake pads are wearing thin, they don't detect whether your rotors need to be replaced.

Yes, all 4 brake sensors were replaced along with the rotors and pads.
