Best panda brake pads (front)

Hi guys my front brakes are due a change. I have read about "green stuff" pads and red dot pads, which are supposidly better pads and last longer than the ones you get from Fiat. Has anyone used these, and are they worth the extra money?

Also, i'm trying to locate them on the internet, can anyone recommend where to get them from?

green pads (amongst others)
was tempted but just changed my fronts along with the discs for cheap unipart jobs and tbh they feel like all the brakes you're likely to need on such a light car. Be interested if they are that good though, although as for lasting longer, well you could change cheap pads 3 times before you'd spent that....

Re: Best panda brake pads (front)

Green stuff are better than usual ones if driving very hard for long period of time (track day). Otherwise would be a waste of money. I defy someone to get brake fade in a standard Panda on the roads though. I can't and I have almost triple standard power.

You won't get much better bite with performance pads that are available for these discs, just better ability to deal with heat IMO.
