Hi all. After a few sudden stops I think I am finally going to replace the factory Pads. I am thinking about changing to EBC 643V. And wanted some opinions?
Been looking around and noticed something. Some Manufacturers list the Same Pad Front and Rear. While others list two different numbers. Example: DP 538F and 547R. EBC lists the same pad, #643 (V or H depending on type)


Mine is 15 model. Cant afford the Brembo Package.


Thank you

Got the pads today. Had to purchase from an Ebay Seller. Amazon gave me a Ship date of Aug something. Changed them out. The Front Brake Pad Pin rounded out. With a brand new socket. Had to order from my dealer. Changed the rear pads. Pedal went to the floor. Went to bleed them, Very little fluid came out. Checked the reservoir, Almost empty. Stupid me drove to Walmart, Which was down the street. Crazy busy over there. They don't sell DOT 4. Had to drive to Advance Auto to get it. 30 minute job turned into a 2 hour ordeal. And I still need to get the Pad Pin.

Some days it just feels as if it is one step forward and two steps backwards.

Just put 50 miles on them today. Its one of those 50f and Humid days. So far so GOOD. Stops better now. Thing is, You need to be easy on them for the first 100 miles or so. For the "Break in"

I was going to use them first. But was told they were "Aggressive" and might damage the stock rotors. One of the Tech Support at Revzilla advised against that model. Told me Stock were "GG" rated.


I had to buy mine from an Ebay Seller. Amazon gave me a Ship Date of Aug?? For "In Stock" pads. Got to love Free Shipping. Amazon has been loosing my business with their Several Month later shipping.
