NEW from EBC Brakes! - It's so new, we don't have them yet! We hope to have them soon and we will update this page when we have a 'definite' schedule for availability. If you are not in a hurry, pre-order now to have a set reserved for you - you won't be charged until we ship.
EBC Greenstuff Street Performance Rear Brake pads for the MINI. These are performance street pads that produce less brake dust (medium dust rating) than the factory pads while offering improved braking performance. These pads use Aramid fibers. Compatible with MINI brake wear sensors.
Fits the following Mini Cooper and Cooper S models:
2014-2020 F56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door
2016-2021 F57 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
Front pads are different for Cooper vs. Cooper S. The rear pads are the same for both Cooper and Cooper S. Select accordingly.
Designed for premium street driving offering better brake effect up to 600°C (1100°F). EBC Greenstuff has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal. There is no such thing as a NO DUST pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most. All pads create more dust as they are bedding in especially if rotors are worn. Nominal friction coefficient 0.55. For faster cars and vehicles above 200bhp we strongly recommend EBC Redstuff which DOES offer much less dust.
These pads are coated with 'BRAKE-IN SURFACE COATING'.
Some BRAKE DUST is inevitable from every brake pad and it is impossible to totally eliminate dust otherwise brake vibration will occur. We never advertise ZERO DUST we only advertise LESS DUST and we appreciate that in some cases dust will be almost the same as original pads. However, please note that dust is always more severe in the first 1000 miles of driving especially if pads were fitted to partly worn rotors. Another condition which promotes significant dust is wrong pad compound choice. If you have a car with over 200bhp (horse power) or drive above what we might call a spirited street level, for example green pads would not be suitable and red ceramic, being a slightly harder pad, can handle these higher speeds and loads and gives off less dust … there may be cases of overload where the Green pads are carbonising in use and a higher spec pad (Red Ceramic) is needed. Yellow compounds are a fantastic brake, probably our best but they are equal in dust to Original parts and should not be chosen if a low dust pad is what you need. Our CLEANEST pads are RED CERAMIC for sedans.
Brakes are a safety critical part of your vehicle and should be installed by a competent mechanic following vehicle manufacturers installation procedure. The surface of these brake pads is coated with a red coating known as BRAKE-IN. This coating helps your newly installed brake pads to 'seat' or bed-in quickly. However, pads should be used gently for the first 100 miles until optimum braking is observed. Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor).
Rotors should be replaced with new when installing new brake pads. Failure to do so can result in brake noise as well as reduced braking efficiency. Avoid contamination of pad surface with any forms of grease that you may use to lubricate caliper sliders.
Manufacturers Warranty applies.
The entire green range is approved to ECE R90 for highway use.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years. See Mini Cooper Brake Fluid Pentosin DOT4 for high quality brake fluid.
