Had Alcon OEM size and Streetmaster fitted by Iain and have been much better than my APs were. No noise and stopped very well on ring and from 180 plus on Autobahn. Needed good bedding in though. Not crazy pricing and appear best cost performance compromise on market.

Just fitted 400mm Alcon fronts, 380mm rears with Pagid RS29 pads.

20k miles on original OEMs. Pads less than half worn, only 1 small crack on the OEM pads. Pads were pretty glazed to be fair.

Only just bedded in the new anchors but I'm gobsmacked just how good they are. Car now feels it needs more power as the brakes just scrub off massive speed instantly.

Very,very impressed. Wholly recommend.

To be totally honest mate I bought them through work over 2 years ago so I don't have the receipt and at my age memory not so good!!!

Not cheap. Think the price has dropped lately compared to what I paid. Just shop around and haggle hard.

Sorry I can't help but don't want to give you a wrong guess.

How did you bed yours in? I just went out and did 3 medium stops and 3 hard / heavy stops.

Following day just used as normal. Only have a 100 miles on them so far.

Satan

Out of interest, how many miles have you done on them and how is the wear on Discs and Pads please?

Satan
Ive done some 5k road miles since they were fitted a year ago and the Bruntingthorpe Asda day which is very hard on the breaks, still plenty left on the discs and pads. I recon with similar annual use they should last me another 2 years at least.

I was hoping with everyone saying the original discs were soft that using the supposedly kind RS29 pads that we would get a bit more than that!

Not a cheap do these 35's!!

I may get more they may do 30K road miles, the discs look like new and the pads have plenty left on them after 5k miles and a track day. Another 2 years was a real guess

Oh thank fu*k for that!!

I thought you meant the discs were a third worn after 5k miles!!

You had me worried there for a moment :)
