Default Dixcel Type M Brake Pads for Brembos

I recently purchased a set of Dixcel Type M brake pads to suit my front Brembos. After 4 weeks of bedding them in and some spirited hills driving I can confirm that these pads are worth every cent I paid for them. Not only are they a big improvement over the stock pads in terms of braking but they are WAY better in terms of the amount of brake dust emitted on to my rims. Its amazing how little dust I am getting on the rims and I AM VERY HAPPY. If you are looking for a good street pad upgrade then this is a good option.
Big thanks to Troy at Prospeed Racing for supply.

$40 cheaper than Ferodo DS2500's. Looks like their less dusty too, good stuff dave.

think DS2500 would be better suited to spirited driving though (live with the dust)

The disclaimer on the website around no track usage is concerning?

If so, I tend to agree with Tode that the DS2500 pad will be the better one for tracking....have to live with the dust.

Its a STREET pad so its not meant to used for track work. They do make other pads for track use.
