    Plenty chat on here about pads if you scour the threads... we're all looking for that holy grail.. it's down to preference.. I've used different compound SBS for years and found them fine...

    I currently have a set of Goldfren GP5s on my HP4.. 32 quid for an axle set... SBS are twice that, Brembo same again... Goldfrens so far are excellent... big name doesn't mean bigger performance tho it means bigger ticket price..

    I always fit the OEM Brembo pads 07bb3396 from Carpimoto https://www.carpimoto.com/

    Much cheaper than from BMW

    Couple of guys including me rate them on here... they make brake systems for a wide variety of applications including commercial planes... handy to know when your supersonic as we all are at times

    I don't know about Brake pads as I've never replaced any, But I have ASV shorty levers on mine and they are excellent and are just a straight swap too.

    Another vote for Goldren pads but I prefer the s33 compound they are £22.50 an axle set that's both front calipers. Brilliant pad I use them for road and track and have done for a few years now https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F132398848070
