I have recently fitted standard pagid pads and find the braking lacks "bite". The ABS barely operates on a dry road under max braking.
I would also be v interested to hear of under upgrades or recommended improvements.

Yep agree on Ferrodo too.

Took the plunge and splashed the cash on Trent Saab grey iron discs and Ferrodo pads, (stage 2 kit).

Baulked at the cost of the pads.....but the setup works a treat on my hard driven 2.3 Carly.

No fade, great response, good feel, will buy the pads again when these go. TSL say they last, we shall see.

One more for Frodo, I mean Ferodo. For those who STILL don't know I had Trent's Stage 2 upgrade on mine, massive stopping power. Make sure your alloys have plenty of lacquer on though as the pads generate lots os "sticky" dust.

I've also had the Trent group N/Ferodo setup on my 9000. Very nice, exceptional value for money. I swapped it for AP's tho, 'cos I'm going to do more track days. Still got Ferodo DS2500 in them tho' (now AP's preferred pads)

Now for the bad news ... round about £100, from Trent Saab. However, it should be possible to source them from somewhere else, which I would guess would be cheaper. The pads I had came in a box marked (I think from memory) for a Merc. They can be a little tight going into the Saab calipers and may need just a little bit ground off the end ears. I suppose you could try quoting the caliper part no to Ferodo and ask them if they have a pad to fit, rather than for the car.
