Not a pad for hard driving, these overheat pretty quickly and I never had much of an issue with the stock mazda pads. Bedded in well, no squeal, low dust, work fine from cold and ok price though. Bottom line: if you never drive the car hard they are a decent replacement, if you do look elsewhere.

Had a problem fitting these pads. With the piston depressed as far as possible could not assemble with both shims. Had to leave innerone out. Will have to fit it later.

Ordered these at 16.30hrs on a Thursday afternoon and they arrived in Northern Ireland at 14.15hrs on the Friday. Now that's what I call service.I fitted them that afternoon and they fitted with no problems. There is no fitting kit but I was able to reuse the rattle springs ok and put plenty of Copaslip on the back of the pads to stop them squealing / sticking.So far with 150 miles covered they are quiet and not a lot of brake dust. The improvement in the brakes is remarkable.Well pleased.

Absolute RUBBISH! EBC should be ashamed about putting their name to this product. The wear rate is unbelievably poor, evidence of this is the huge amount of dusting. After bedding my pads in for 1000 miles I undertook a track evening. 1.5 hours of track time and the pads needed replacing!! Now mx5parts say you should NOT track these pads and I can vouch for that. However, mx5parts to their credit replaced them free of charge. OEM would be a much better buy and do not see the wear rates I experienced..I also experienced excessive brake squeal from these pads, the sort of squeal that makes small children cup their ears when I brake near them!I need my handbrake adjusting once a month due to the excessive wear on the rears too. I will not be touching these (and my faith in any EBC product tbh) again.

Quite alarming \'green fade\' when new, even with fairly moderate use. OK on the road once past that stage. However, a track day at Colerne took them from new thickness to being ready for replacement. To their credit, they didn\'t fade, just vaporised. Whatever was on the car before (Textar branded) handled a day at Colerne and a day at Anglesey without anywhere near as much wear.Editors Note: Please be aware, as the description states, these pads are direct replacements for the original equipment. They were never designed to withstand high temperature track use. We do have a great range of Green, Red and Yellowstuff pads however, which were designed for just that purpose.

Got these after reading various recomendations and I have to say they are fine, fitted in an hour or so really pleased with the feel of the pads straight away.One thing to note and I'm not sure if it's the pads or not, could not get the grill type squeal plate back but I will put this back once the pads have gone down a touch.

Great delivery from MX5 Parts, no problem with fitting, baking power is good, but mine are noisy when gently braking (no noise when hard braking). With a convertible, any noise is unpleasant...

I need to replace my front pads, and i was thinking of purchasing the ebc kevlar pads, but on reading a review from a buyer in april this year, the pads he thought he was purchasing, were not even mentioned on the packaging.I also noticed that there were no comments from anyone at mx5parts as to his concerns. Can you advise me, so that i can make a decision. Regards.

Usual fast delivery. Good quality pads with plenty of feel, good bite and low dust. Just what I wanted at the right price.

Replaced 4 discs with the "budget ones", and these pads, which I have to say are very good for the price, if you diy install them, the lack of fitting kits is a minor annoyance.The brake running in coating is a a lot better than I was expecting. and the lack of fade and feel of them is good for the price as well.

Delivery Information - MX5 Parts

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 2kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £2.95 for a package weighing under 200g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 2kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

A signature is required for ALL orders delivered by Think Worldwide. Someone must be at your delivery address to sign for your parcel between 8am and 6pm on a working day. Please send it somewhere it can be reliably signed for, like your place of work, a neighbour, or perhaps your grans. We can (but we don’t like to) ask the courier to leave your parcel without a signature. If we do this, it will be YOUR responsibility if the parcel is lost or damaged. If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

If you need to change your delivery address, for any packages that have been dispatched with Think Worldwide, there will be an additional charge of £9.95 if the package has already been dispatched.

Please remember, even with Royal Mail deliveries, that any items which are too large to fit through your letter box will need someone to be available to receive the delivery. If the item cannot be delivered, you will be carded and given the option of either a re-delivery or you can collect your parcel from your local post office depot.

Orders sent to countries outside the UK will be sent VAT free, however please note that on all international shipments, the recipient is responsible for any local VAT, import duty and other clearance fees that may be charged.

Our Guarantee - MX5 Parts

We guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts!

We are an independant, family company, run by a dedicated team. We aim to be the kind of company that we’d like to deal with if we were you. You have our absolute commitment as fellow MX-5 owners, car nuts, internet users and hard-working people that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts. If you’re not, let us know and we’ll sort it out!

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t despatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised despatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase. Sorry, but we can not refund the carriage costs.

We guarantee that we will only charge your credit/switch card when your goods are dispatched

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.
