If I go to the search button and type in "Brake Pads" (because I want to see what other car uses Barchetta pads as I am in South Africa where there are no other Barchettas) it takes me to everything but brake pads. Am I doing something wrong?

probably..

got to SEARCH,
then "advanced" then use specifics , and you can search certain forums ..,

works well for things like;
8V timing marks,
or wheel offsets,

BUT TBH - because you are trying to "cross-reference".. - a scan of EBAY should find links to some excellent cross referencing material..,

BUT beware of specific build dates. etc for a better chance of a part that will actually fit..,
brakes are at least often stated in MM's for the components dimensions..,

Re: Search Engine

Do you put it in the speech marks?

Brake pads and "brake pads" are different searches.

Re: Search Engine

Oh also, if you go into the barxhetta forum listing itself, there is a "search this forum" dropdown just above the thread listing.

This is obviously more specific :-)
