I'm sure there were more of us on the old forum, or at least there was more discussion !

Maybe we've run out of things to discuss ?

We do seem to have either lost people or we've all become trappists.
But a question which may start views.
The ancient quest for the best front pads to fit Subaru 4 pot calipers available in the UK as mine are approaching the change point. I don't want OEM as they turn my alloys into a graphite colour PDQ. so views please. I have the post in the brake forum but they are all US products and the shipping would probably be too expensive.
I have a prejudice against Greenstuff for the same reason but maybe they have got better in the last three years.

I'm here though very much a newbie

To be honest logging on is easy but posting anything is difficult at the moment!

The Ferodo DS2500 seem well-regarded, but Scoobynet search is switched off so I can't find the actual references. I recall some discussions about the dust or lack of dust a while back.

Experience says the four pots are a standard design across all Subarus with them fitted - ie later classic imprezas JDM or UK. I think Japan got them earlier than we did but as far as I know that is the only difference. Not sure about the timeline in Foresters.
I'm not sure of the vintage of my four pots as they came from GradeA Subaru in Derbyshire and so are from a broken late classic Impreza.
Demon Tweeks will help sort out the right pads or try GradeA for advice as they have always been helpful in the past.
