I don't recall who suggested fitting EBC Greenstuff brake pads to my 50th
Anniversary Disco a couple of months ago, but many thanks to you.
No one is ever happy to do an emergency stop, but the three or four times
I've had to do one for real in the last ten years has always left me shaking
my head at the feebleness of the standard brakes. They just seem to lack
authority. Obviously I don't want to skid particularly, but I've never felt
that I was stopping the car as quickly as I should either.
Well the Greenstuff brake pads have done the job. The difference is NOT
day-and-night. Under normal braking no one would notice a change. But I
have just returned from a trip to Italy during which I had to stop pretty
smartly a couple of times and I was astonished at how confidently the car
Coming back via Switzerland, over the Simplonpass, the brakes get a real
work-out too, and I am sure I am not imagining the improved performance
under endlessly repeated hard braking there either.
So, heartily recommended.
