Anyone know of others?
As Terry already said: FDS856/857 are for the single pot calipers (156.50 x 69.60 x 18.50 mm for 840i/850i and old Maserati ).
I found FCP1298 to be the correct shape, but they seem too big ?! (119.80 x 54.60 x 18.00 mm) - but those pads are also listed for the 850?!




Kind regards,
Tobias

I have spent much time searching the Ferodo numbers.......no luck yet?

I emailed the contact DaveW posted in another thread , but haven't heard back.

That size is correct for the Brembo 4-pots used on some regular e31 with 324x30 discs......

Will try to find a different Ferodo number for the fronts. Can I assume 857 for the rear is correct? 4 different manufacturers all state identical pads for 850CSi and regular e31.....

FDS857 are listed with 123.00 x 54.80 x 17.00 mm, I'll have to look back home if I still got some old pads to cross-check.

Kind regards,

Had a couple of emails from Tim at http://circuitsupplies.com/.

The price for the DS2500 pads is £84.10 plus VAT, which seems pretty good to me. So I've ordered a set. He's checking availability wth the factory. But he hasn't given me the part number yet.

He also said that

part numbers starting "FDS" refers to Ferodo "DS
Performance" pads. These are a fast road pad only, and made within the confines
of a regulation called R90.This states that these pads are, amongst other
things, within plus/minus 15% performance of the OE pad for that particular
vehicle.

DS2500 on the other hand, is outside the scope of R90, and is approx 40% better
than OE pads. It is designed for "track day" use.

DS2500 should not be used on road cars, registered from 2000 onwards.

The exceptions to this, is where it is used in a brake upgrade,IE DS2500 is
supplied in all AP Racing "Formula" brake kits, as AP have found it to be the
best pad, for this application.

Update lads.

Been talking to Tim at circuitsupplies.com, very helpful guy.

Ferodo DS2500 pad is part number FCP646H.
Price is £98.82 inc VAT and UK delivery.
he doesn't normally stock them but he does get a delivery from the factory almost every week.

Also he can get DS3000 compound for 92.50 + VAT and delivery. but these may take some time as they would be special order.

T

Stevie, do you think it's a reasonable idea to edit your first post to include all the correct part numbers?
