EBC Ceramic REDSTUFF Low Dust CERAMIC Performance pads.
Fits the following non-JCW models:
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 MINI Cooper S Hatchback

Superstreet formula for cars above 200bhp and fastest street driving
This material is an Aramid fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. If you have previously tried EBC redstuff (pre-ceramic compound) this material is light years ahead. It lasts longer, it brakes better and is quieter. 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).
This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking.
It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction compared to other pads.
(These pads may dust some during break-in, and maybe even 'squeal' a little - but the dust and noise will subside after break-in. Use anti-squeal compound when installing for added prevention against squeal.)
Features EBC Brake-InTM surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in.
Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction compared to other pads.
Select Front or Rear set.

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.
For Brake Upgrade Kits that includes the EBC Redstuff Ceramic Pads, see NMK3220, NMK3224, or NMK3226.
Compatible with factory brake wear sensors.
If your brake wear warning light is illumninated, see replacement sensors.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years, more often if you track your Mini.

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.
