    Hey there everyone,

    One of the questions that I receive quite often is what pads and rotors do I recommend for better stopping and longevity for the MINI Cooper R53, with stock wheels.

    Well, I now have a kit that I think will be quite good for everyone that takes the guess work out of the equation.

    Most will agree that EBC makes some fantastic brake pads, and now you can get their Redstuff street pads, and slotted rotors front and rear as a kit.

    For $500.00 including shipping here in the US, I think you will find these to be a fantastic upgrade. Especially if you are still running the 16 inch wheels on your MINI.

    There are lots of options out there but I think you find that this is one of the better upgrades you can make. It is still cost effective and is basically plug and play.

    Let me know how I can help,

    Good deal, but EBC Reds Suck! I have had 4 sets separate the pad from the backing plate and will never use or recommend them to anyone.

    Aww c'mon Dave, that was years ago! They have fixed the problem, I have had EBC reds on my car for a couple of years. They are superior to OEM.

    Not saying they are not better then any crappy BMW OEM pad but not worth the risk.

    I had Redstuffs on my S until a caliper froze and I had to get new brakes. I went with the OEM MINI brakes and have not had a problem with them although they dust a lot and squeal some. The Redstuffs lasted a long time...to the Dragon and back numerous times, for daily driving, and on the track at Mid Ohio.
