Brake pads

i need some new front brake pads and I'm just looking at the options for road use and the odd track outing. In the recent past I've been more than happy with Brembo HP 2000 or Texstar which seem to be around 50 quid cheaper at £86. My question is, are there any differences between the advertised ones, product code 101330156 versus my old ones which are marked 7428 20953 (43P) 02?

i'm not willing to experiment with anything else as the two mentioned above suit my needs well. Any information gratefully received.
Main difference is the size! The 101330156 are Textar rears, 2095302 are Textar front (for a RS)

Ian, to ensure you get the right ones for the 964RS just give Matthew at Type911 a call and he'll sort you out. I was very happy with HP2000 on my 964 so have just put them on my Cayman R in readiness for the RS day. Getting the right ones was a bit confusing but Matthew sorted it out for me.

Thanks Matthew,

That explains it. To be fair one of the websites I viewed (Eurocarparts, I think) listed that one as fronts. So it seems like only one compound/type of Textar.


That's obviously one and the same Matthew (above!) I'll give him a call and order some, probably the HP2000s which are currently on and proved to be ideal.

(Matthew, if you're going to Oulton Park on Friday please feel free to bring some along if convenient and I'll buy them off you, Steve would point me out.

They fit the front on standard 964, some websites are confusing to say the least!

I wont be venturing away from BR3 until summer!
