Green stuff are very good! but a hint the Brakes on a 160 are teh same as a Honda so you might get them a little cheaper!

Yep, bought and fitted them myself. They are just as dusty, trust me.

I'd go and get a photo of the front wheel showing the green pad and all the dust but it's raining.

I only went for greenstuff for the dust reduction not cos of the performance - doh!

What discs are you using, OE ones or EBC Turbogrooved Discs. (Just noticed you have a 160 so they will be OE discs.)

Alot of the dust will be a combination of the disc material and the pads, Greenstuff pads will wear out OE discs quite alot, I know because I have had a set of discs and only had minimal wear on the pads.

EBC Greenstuff pads do create less dust than other pads, simply just by the construction of the pad material. I don't think you could say EBC are breaking the trade description act, as no doubt they have a disclaimer, and that the claim is made but controlled tests. No brake pad will have zero dust and if it does then I would change them ASAP because they wouldn't stop you.

EBC pads are recommended with EBC discs and in this scenario you may find the amount of dust produced is minimal, unfortunately you can't get Turbo Grooved discs for the 160 at the mo.

Mintex 1144's, the daddy pads :mrsmiley:
Very good brakes Steve, but quite expensive (especially for 620Ti calipers) and they left plenty of dust as well.

Got Greenstuff pads and turbo grooved ebc discs on my MG Midget and I'd recommend them, much less dust and although standard midgets are prone to a little fade they are excellent now. Heard good things about them on MGF's too. I'll certainly look into getting them on my ZR when the time comes.
