any real difference between the "green" and "red" stuff brakes?
i also want brakes with as little brake dust as possible, but they have to stop well.

I bought some of their Mintex A/F brake pads and they are awesome. I got the brake package for 169 plus shipping. It included the pads and slotted rotors.

Can u see the green pads when you look at your wheels?
I found the GreenStuff pads for $77.42 is that good? I found the EBC rotors for $155.00 a set so it would be $232.00 for the EBC pads the green ones and rotors sound good? If you know where i can get the for a better deal please let me know. thanks
