I am replacing a set of the EBC Greenstuff pads on my Mk2.5 1.8. Here are the comparative mileages:
Mazda original pads - 25,300 miles
Unbranded pads - 17,400 miles
EBC Greenstuff - 33,300 miles
My own feeling is the EBC ones are the messiest of the three, and the original Mazda ones were the cleanest. I couldn't honestly tell the difference in performance, the braking system of the car always seems progressive and to me at least, "well-specified for the task in hand".
Incidentally, the car is now getting its first pair of replacement rear discs, and its second pair of replacement front discs. The original front discs were lost to corrosion, the unbranded replacements have worn away with the EBC pads. This is a late Mk2.5 car, registered in 2005.
