SLK 55 brake pad experiences?
I am looking for new front pads for Upah and I can't seem to find any consensus searching here - most of the discussion here seems to be about the rotors. I'd love to hear your thoughts on pads. I've searched MB, fcpeuro, rockauto, and the local parts stores.
The pads I'm replacing look to be metallic - lots of shiny flecks in the pad material. I'm wondering what the group experience here is with any of the wide variety of pads available. If you search online, you can find them from $30 to $220, with a wide variety of compositions - organic, metallic, ceramic, ferro-carbon, and others.
I have the 340mm rotors with six-pot calipers.
