Reduce brake dust on your FRONT wheels!!! EBC Greenstuff Rear Brake Pads deliver increased stopping power, reduced brake fade and reduce wheel dust by up to 80% over many aftermarket semi-metallic offerings.
For 2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 MINI Cooper S, and for 2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and S Convertibles.
The new Greenstuff material reduces pad to disc operating temperature by up to 200 degrees while offering high initial 'bite' and are effective up to 800 degrees F. Features factory style spring clips for accurate and quiet operation. Fits all models
Follow manufacturers bed-in procedure for proper operation.
These pads are slotted for the factory brake sensor.
For Rear Pads, see NMB1101.
For maximum dust reduction, see the EBC RED Pads.
If you plan on 'tracking' the car for DE events, see the EBC YellowStuff Pads - these are 'track rated' street/track pads.
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.
If your brake wear warning light is illumninated, see replacement sensors.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years. See ATE Performance Brake Fluid for replacement brake fluid. ATE® Type 200 Amber is a high quality performance fluid that will last much longer than the standard DOT4 fluid. This is an ABS friendly fluid.
ATE® Super Blue and ATE® TYP 200 Amber has a dry boiling point of 536F and a wet boiling point of 396F which far exceeds standard brake fluids meeting the DOT 4 requirements. This fluid is NOT SILICONE and is compatible with conventional brake fluid. 100% synthetic fluid is specifically designed to resist the high temperatures of racing brakes and yet very suitable for daily driving.

MINI recommends NEW rotors when installing new brake pads. MINI factory does not recommend 'Turning' of MINI rotors.
We recommend the use of 'anti-squeal' compound, even though EBC uses anti-vibration shims on all their pads.
Brake Fluid should be changed/flushed every two year.
Use caution when driving immediately after installing new pads - brake efficiency, noise, and dusting will not be optimal until the pads are 'broken in'. As the Pads are broken in, brake feel will improve, any 'squealing' noises will diminish, and the amount of brake dust will be reduced.
EBC BRAKE PADS BED-IN PROCEDURE:
Drive your vehicle steadily within the first 300-400 miles of road use only using the brakes violently in case of emergency. During this time use the brakes lightly and intermittently to achieve a matching between the pad and rotor which we call break in or bed in.
The speed with which perfect brake in will have occurred depends on how often the brakes are used. If you drive on a freeway or motorway and do not use your brakes for miles at a time, break in periods will be much longer. Using the brakes with caution during their early life will extend their wear life and greatly reduce the chances of rotor vibration or “shimmying” as it is known in the States.
During the bed in time the pads will only contact the disc on a limited area until tiny irregularities in machining or misalignment of the pads against the rotor have been removed. You can easily see how far you have progressed with bedding in your new brakes by looking through the wheel spokes and evaluating pad contact. The rotor should look shiny and smooth across its surfaces from outside to inside in all areas of the rotor.
Break in times on European vehicles is usually considerably longer than on Asian or US built vehicles because of the design of the brake system. European vehicles use a “taller” brake pad and may tend to contact on the outer edges of the rotor first and gradually contact more towards the centre of the axle over the first few hundred miles.
After you are confident that the pads and discs are perfectly mated, use the brakes on a quiet and safe road 5-6 times at medium pressure bringing the car from 60mph to 10mph. Drive the vehicle for a few miles to allow the brakes to cool and repeat this procedure.
During this final break in a brake odour will almost certainly appear and this is perfectly normal. This is known as green fade where the surface resins within the pad finally cure and burn off.
