EBC Ultimax pads are awesome!!
I installed these on the rear of my 2013 Mini Cooper Countryman S. The break in period was about 50 miles before they fully seated against the brake rotor, but they were solid and safe after 10 miles. These brake pads are more consistent than my stock brake pads. There was a little noise while they broke in, but are silent now. Would buy again, these are great pads!! I maintain and service brakes on all my vehicles for the last 20 years.
EBC Red Stuff - Good brake pads - Not so good sensor
The brake pads installed were for Brembo brakes in a JCW mini cooper. The pads went in easily and fit perfectly, however the sensor I ordered with the pads would not go in the sensor slot all the way. The plastic on the sensor head finally broke so I had to reinstall the old sensor.
