Ferodo DS2500

For anyone that is interested in the DS2500 pads;
FCP1628H

Managed to put my D2500's on today.

Didn't have any bedding in process for Ferodo to hand but went for;
5x Light stops through town just to get the pedal feel back, followed by
5x 70-80% braking pressure 60MPH- 10MPH and then
3x 40MPH-5MPH 90% brake pressure.

They feel great so far, compared to the standard pads, the initial bite is very positive, after the initial bite the feel is firm and progressive. I haven't been able to really test them due to the weather but under hard braking in the rain they will lock the fronts up much more quickly than the old pads did.

Will update once i have tested in the dry
Should have Motul RB600 fluid in by mid next week as well

Bringing this back from the dead. Where did you get them? How much?

And how are they now they have seated properly?

Brake dust?
Brake noise?
Are you using stock discs?

I bought them from camskill

FCP1628H 129.71 with free delivery

I sold the car about 4/5 months ago but i did put a few thousand miles on the pad + about 12 laps at the 'ring.

Pads where noticeably better than the Textar pads on and off track.

Brake dust seemed, to me, about the same as standard pads.

Brake noise once they had been correctly bedded in was minimal, sometime light squeal when cold but soon went away.

However after some heavy use on the track the brake noise was horrendous... required a good few hundred miles and re-bedding twice before the noise sort of subsided.

Yes i was on standard 335 discs. I did consider Black Diamond grooved but i have to say the standard disc with these pads and Motul fluid held up very well.

I would defiantly recommend the pads if the are around the same price now.

Thanks mate. Very helpful.

They are still the same price. I am just wondering if I really want to pay to play or just get something a little cheaper...

Your reply was very helpful

Thank you

No problem.

Personally i see brakes a an important part of the upgrade package, especially when you increase the power of a car. Generally someone who increase the power of the car is probably likely to be demanding more from the brakes than someone who does not. So i would say defiantly pay to play.

They are bit more expensive than standard pads but realistically you don't change pads that often (excluding tracking) so the cost is minimal in the scheme of things.

1st thing i have done on my 911 is upgraded to Pagid RS29's. AMAZING but expensive.

I guess it's dependant on what you intend to do with the car. If you plan on track i would say 100% upgrade pads and fluid. If you only use it on the road you might not need to do the upgrade.

Thank you.

I think I am going to have to bite the bullet. Although a blank stock disc performs very well, I am very tempted to include aesthetics into the upgrade and get a slotted disc... But there are very few decent ones I would want to run on a 335i
