I have also used redstuff and have been on all my cars for years now. I don't know about yellow, but I'm extremely satisfied with the EBC products I have been using.

I just put on yellowstuff, much better than the redstuff I had before. Really strong bite and the spongy feel is gone too!

If you track the car don't use yellow stuff. It isn't engineered for cars this heavy. They brought out the blue stuff for track/street use on heavy cars. I have blue stuff and it works good on the street. I want to do a track day eventually but haven't yet.

EBC blue stuff

I have EBC bluestuff and am not too sure if I like them. Living in Germany and driving on the Autobahn, the OEM pads worked just fine braking from 110mph when hitting heavy traffic, or STAU!!!

The bluestuff seem to whine when hot and squeak a lot when driving in city traffic and sound like a trash truck when stopping with light pressure on the brake pedal.

Not sure if that is normal for pads that are meant for a lot of abuse. Would not buy them again if had the choice. Like I said, the stock pads worked just as well for me.

I have EBC yellow stuff on the front it is their hybrid pad for heavier cars - sourced them in the UK... heavier M3's and Jags run them on track days. I like mine.

I have EBC Yellow Stuff and they squeak a lot in city traffic. Their stopping power is awesome but stopping at a light with light pressure on the brake pedal invariably results in awful squeaking. As much as I like their stopping power, I would not buy them again.

That is interesting as mine do not squeak at all. What kind of rotors do you use? I have drilled and slotted and I am wondering if that I why I don't get a squeak or I am just lucky?


I have yellow in the front and red in the back. I was using all red but the front pads wore down quickly with 3 big track days last year.
