Good brake pads

Hi. I'm looking for suggestion as to what brake pads I should get for my disco 3. A relatively new disco owner and wanted some ideas as what to buy. Primarily road use at the min, with nothing overly heavy being towed behind her!

Avoid Mintex at all costs

Stick with OEM Ferodo pads, or upgrade to EBC ceramic pads Thumbs Up

Having tried a few options I just stick with OEM pads.

Any squealing with the EBC ceramic or ultimax? And any worse brake dust than OEM?

Cheap Censored
Fade very easily, and lots of brake dust

They do have an uprated brake pad, but it is very expensive, and probably not made for the D3


The EBC Ultimax are a very similar pad, in my experience

The ceramic pads do squeal a bit until they have bedded in. Afterwards, they are silent Thumbs Up

I bought a 3 year old d4 a few months ago with full LRSH except the tight previous owner got cheap pads fitted to the 65k original discs. The rear disc is warped due to epb warranty repair and Landrover did not change the disc and it makes horrible squeeking noises when you touch the brake. Brakes are not reasuring and will be changing the lot soon. Anyone want to make a guess which pads they are will confirm when I change them. Is it worth going pattern or just go genuine.

Cheap brake parts are generally just that ......cheap! Performance is usually poorer and as already said lots of brake dust. Particularly If you use your disco for towing I would stick to oem Thumbs Up

The brakes were poor on my d4 pulled them apart yesterday and found original discs now 70k miles and new unipart brake pads. I would say unipart stuff not great.

I've just changed my front pads for EBC Ultimax 2 and I am not impressed at all. Fade comes on far too soon as does overheating. As soon as I can find some spare time they will be changed.
