    All depends on what you want.

    Are you looking to stay OEM or after an upgrade etc.

    For a road car I'd buy the cheapest discs I can find on eBay.

    Then some good branded pads like Brembo.

    Personally, I will go for RPB brake discs, and Ferodo DS2500 pads, you can find these on the tegiwaimports website or ebay shop. I added them up quickly, 511 GBP total, free delivery. Currently I have drilled-grooved discs on the front, stock ones on the back, Brembo pads all around. I took my EP3 to mountain twisties twice in the past weeks, and my brakes started to fade after 6-7 kilometers, uphill. Regular pads are just not up to the task, so DS2500s it is. Plus, according to what the tegiwa website says, RPB discs have been used on Civic cup cars, consdering it is true of course.

    With this setup, and DOT5.1 fluid, I should be ok for faster road driving, and modest track days as well. Hope this helps!

    Total waste of time and money for the rear. Just get OEM from somewhere like https://www.brakesint.co.uk/

    Really? Are the brakes so front biased? If I really don't need anything serious for the rear, that's good news, I just want to make sure.

    Yes, I run OEM pads on my track car without issue. Also, DS2500 are garbage.

    +1 for this. I ran stoptech 330mm up front with OEM on the back. Was perfect on track.

    I understand, thanks for the input. Meanwhile, an experienced friend told me to definately get the same pads and discs for all corners. What's more, so far I read only good reviews about DS2500s. Trying to get info an anything nowadays...

    In your experience, why are DS2500s rubbish?

    Expensive, chuck out mountains of dust and don't perform as well as others in my experience
