Hi all

Was wondering if anyone has used Ferodo DS3000 pads for road use ?

Am looking for a set of front pads for the Passat (312mm) and was going to go ahead with DS2500s, but then I read about the DS3000.

Are these useable on the road, or is the cold performance quite poor ?
Also - what about noise/squeal, dust, pad/disc life etc ?

Thanks for any info....:)

yes, perfectly fine, great bite from cold.. possibly some squeak if they are used lightly and not how they're designed to be used.. aka hard as..

How would you say the stone-cold performance compares with OE, and DS2500s ?

Can you give me a price for the DS2500s and the DS3000s, for a 2002 Passat ?
(Has 312mm discs)
PM me if you like !

After some disc recommendations too, would probably like to try some slotted; might help clear some of the salty wet crud that seems to accumulate during winter driving...

Thanks !
