Exclamation Price for Front brake pads

Is there any F champs or others that know of replacments & price? My dealer quoted me 465.00 for the pads. Brembo website offers no insight. Thanx in advance for any input.

The dealer price you were quoted looks right. I am working with Hawk Performance as we speak. My intentions are to send them a set of factory IS-F pads so they can develop their HPS, HP Plus and ceramic compound for our cars. Stay tuned.....

I made an internet request to Ferodo, and got this response:

"Hi Lou,

Thanks for the interest!

(front) FERODO DS2500 BRAKE PADS $220/set
We do not yet carry any rear pads for this vehicle.

For ordering, or for more information, you can reach me directly at: 800-733-8380.

Best Regards,
Edwin Robinson.

I have used Ferodo in the past with outstanding results.

update

I have a set of O.E. IS-F brake pads leaving here today headed to Hawk Performance for evaluation and measuring. I will provide updates as we go. Have any of you ever used any of the Hawk products before?

I too am interested in how the aftermarket pads perform. Having just had my front's replaced for $700+ at the dealer (see my other threads for why this was necessary), I am reluctant to go with the OEM pads.

Looking forward to the HAWK pads when they become available.

I will be installing the Ferodo DS2500 pads & will report back after Sunday. Weather will be favorable for bed-in procd. ChrisH... I think I can guess why u need new pads.
