Went into GSF the other day looking for brake pads for my 94 C280 and was offered this brand.

Has anyone used them before and are they any good?

A Google search does not bring up much about them

I would go for the known brands such as Mintex/ATE etc.

Cheap brake pads will squeak when braking and dont last too long

GSF do Textar and Pagid which are O.E. on a lot of German cars.

I've seen they do Vtech discs but I'd rather opt for the Brembo HC option as opposed to the Brembo Max discs. The only difference between the HC and Max disc is that the Max are grooved. When the grooves are no longer visible the Max discs become HCs. Performance difference on the road isn't noticable.

Expensive brake pads such as Pagid RS4-2 Blue will squeal too and will wear 1 set of pads to 3 sets of Brembo HC discs.

Shame you're not in Birmingham as the lads at GSF near Fort Dunlop would do you a nice discount.
