What type of brake pad to get

I looked at pelicans website, they have Factory which is really expensive, Pagid, Mintex and then Jurid. Which one of these should i get? I want to try and avoid factory seeing as how it is twice the price of the other 3.

Ahhh the irony.

OEM for Porsche brake pads are Pagid, Jurid, or Texstar.

Prefer Pagid myself.

Rock:
I use KFP Magnum Golds on my 944S2. Great stopping power: it's an intermediate track pad with a carbon kevlar material used, so it is very rotor friendly.

The downside to the KFP's are two fold: squeaky and a bit dusty. But they make my car stop on a dime!

I like the thick new ones. You know the ones that are at those car parts stores.

These are far better than the thin ones you can get at the junk yards.

Funny SoCal,
I see you're really trying to prove Rock wrong on the serious output wank.
I've got Mintex on my daily. Good braking, in fact with the stock set-up and my old tires, I had to be careful not to lock it up. Haven't tried really hard braking with the new rubber yet. They are a bit dusty, but the Brembo rep re-affirmed that you can't have good braking without dust and squeeks.

Under "normal" street driving conditions, what is the typical life expectancy of pads with stock rotors?

Based upon what I have read, the earlier cars had more front bias than the S2s because of the brake proportioning valve differences, so I assume that the older 944s eat front pads even faster than the S2s.

I am unsure of the early 944's, but I know that on my track driven S2, the rears last about twice as long as the front pads. Not a big deal, IMHO.

HTH,

No, not a big deal at all. That's just the way it is...fronts do most of the stopping. I was just curious how long (as in how many miles) the front OEM pads normally last on a 944.

Yep I was at AGA with my beater,
I only wish I had won that Falken tire set. It was great to talk to some other 944 types as well as get some first hand info on brake systems from the Brembo techs. I also got to see one of the garage techs plug a bimmer into their diagnostic machine. There's defeinitely some benefits to having a modern machine, but I stil like the feeling of accomplishment of digging under the hood and finding and fixing my own problems.
