    Hi

    I need to order some replacement rear brake pads. Went to europarts.com but found 2 types of each of the sets. Can't find which ones I need.

    It's a 2006 I-CTDI.


    Lucas:
    Pagid Honda

    Akebono:
    Pagid Honda


    Can anyone point me in the right direction? Last time I ordered I didn't have that problem ...

    ring HH and buy genuine
    pagid are rubbish cheap and nasty
    Europarts churn them out as do GSF best left for BMW and Audi and other German crud. I would not entertain them. I bought mine from HH genuine with club discount and free postage there was only a few £ difference but quality are worlds apart

    ^^^+1 With the club discount the price difference isn't worth bothering with after market.

    Cheers guys. Looking into that if there's not such a huge price difference.

    I'd go to HH personally. Pagid are OE fitment on Porsche. Not really rubbish and fitted them to the wife's ST and vastly improved braking.
