Default Ferodo DS2500 brake pads available - "dual use" street/track

For those who have been clamoring for "dual use" street/track brake pads for the new M3, the Ferodo DS2500 is finally available. We have front pads in stock and rear pads arriving from Italy in a couple of weeks.

While I'm a big advocate of swapping in dedicated track pads prior to each event, then swapping back to street pads, many of my customers have circumstances that make this difficult or impossible. For those who insist on a single set of pads to do it all, the Ferodo DS2500 is an excellent choice.

We've been pushing for this pad for some time and are happy to report that they are now in production. The front pads are here and on the shelf. (They arrived yesterday.) The rear pads are still a couple of weeks out. You can find them here: http://store.zeckhausen.com/catalog/...cPath=3_16_697

I really like the 2500's. Been running them for a long time. They do fine on the street, and you can go right on to the track with no problem. A little bit soft at high temps, but they're consistent once hot with proper ducting.

They can be more prone to squealing under light braking than the stock pads. It depends on the application. In any case, proper bedding per: http://www.zeckhausen.com/bedding_in_brakes.htm can help minimize this.

In the E46 M3, the DS2500 rear pads are somewhat problematic, since Ferodo consolidated a bunch of shapes and ended up with piston clips on the inboard pads that were undersized. As a result, the inboard rear pads may click or rattle on bumpy roads when the brakes are not applied. I've been assured this is not the case with the D918 (front) and D919 (rear) shapes for the E90/E92/E93 M3.

Keep in mind that these are more aggressive than the stock pads, so they will wear the rotors a bit more. The whole point is that these may be kept on the car for both street and light/medium track use, so they will move up the scale further away from low dust, low noise pads. If you're looking for something you can take to the track, yet also produce less dust than stock and never squeal, then these are the wrong pads. In fact, such pads don't exist, to the best of my knowledge. When they do, I'll be one of the first to offer them!

I think I noticed squealing a long time ago when cold, but haven't noticed anything lately. Dust is about the same as stock dirty stuff.
They are quite easy on rotors, but I'm using 2 piece AP racing discs.

These pads are amazing. Had them on my Evo 9. Relatively low noise and dust for the street and no hint of fade at an HPDE.
