    I did those DBA rotors front and rear recently. I think it was QFM pads as I wanted less dust. I successed very well. Happy with the performance also

    what are the QFMs like?
    Are they ceramic? Noisy? Will they chew out the rotors?

    Just don't mix DBA discs and EBC pads as they don't play well together.

    Since when?
    DBA 5000s on the front, 4000s on the rear and EBC reds all round. Trouble free motoring for years now, excellent bite and very very little dust.

    My experience with them led me to call Matt over it and he told me the same thing. I was running the same set up as you on a VX Acclaim wagon and whilst it started out ok it turned to shit 20000km later

    I don't do a lot of kms per year but they would have been on for about 3-4 years, 30-40k at a guess
