    205 GTi Brakes?????

    I was about to order my greenstuff pads and I was asked the question of what calipers I have. Girling or Bendix? How would I know this. I have a 1992 GTi.

    hi parry,

    theyd be bendix.

    just a thang, ive recently slapped on new front pads on ma 205 - they r the factory bendix spec pads. r the greenstuff pads, that all of u swear by, really worth it?

    Until Igot on here, I'd never heard of greenstuff pads. I've had original pads in my6 205 GTi for three years, they still haven't worn out and it still stops on a dot. What is greenstuff? Are they harder? Don't they rip the discs up? If they don't, why don't they? Do they require higher operating temps? etc. Where does the info come from?

    if i have any say on what goes on the GTi6 next it'll be EBC grooved rotors and Greenstuff pads. The greenstuff is a bit too hard on the OEM rotors, but are better.

    The advice I was given was to use EBC rotors with OEM pads. This is from someone who has tried a lot of different combinations on an Mi16 at Targa.

    my only concern with the OEM Valeo pads, is they're quite gunky. Superficial, I guess.

    I'm sure if they're DBA they're great except for the price $800 or so for the bendix ones me think.

    Re brakes and pads

    Take it from me, from real world, tarmac rally and limited track experiece, slotted rotors with Pug OE pads are superb-on an Mi16 405, which is a heavier car than a 205.
    Stopping distance is significantly improved, feel is very good and car pulls up nice and straight.
    I have used this combination for about 4 months now on the recommendation of Gerald Cullen, Queensland Targa Tassie driver. That included Targa NZ spectator tour, with fast laps on Pukekohe Park, Taupo and Manfield tracks. From Gerald's experience, one only needs a higher temp. operating pad if your only circuit racing and/or tarmac rallying.

    As far as I'm concerned, what Gerald says goes. Every piece of advice he has ever given me regarding my Mi16 as been spot on. Why wouldn't you listen to him. That thing of theirs is seriously quick. Did you know they have just finished a GTI6? Doesn't mean he wants to sell me the Mi16 though!

    Cheers,

    Cal.
