Hi all,
Managed to get a set of pedals from Dave’s parts sale. The accelerator and brake were easy enough. In fact I think it’s the best designed sports pedal I’ve seen especially as there is no drilling required. Cant say the same about the footrest, what an absolute nightmare!! Lots of versions of how to install the footrest with most people opting for Velcro. Ended up putting four holes through the existing rest and then pulling the carpet back to sandwich the carpet between the plate and the supplied nuts and washers.
Read somewhere about there being a metal frame but couldn’t see it on my car let alone get to it. Anyway, after a couple of hours of head scratching and a few choice descriptive words... Voila

Now for the brakes:
I have identified the discs from eurospares however I would like an uprated pad to go into the 6 and 4 pot calipers. So far I’ve found the AS Motorsport ones and definitely looking for either ceramic or metallic pads.
I’ve had performance friction and CL on other cars which have transformed the brakes however I’ve not found the right pad listed with either of them to date. Any one else able to suggest anything?

Thinking of going with a set of performance friction on standard drilled discs. Anyone else running this or anything like it?

There hasn’t been a lot of talk about upgraded pads for Ghibli etc. Some people have good results with yellow stuff (I’m not a fan) Ferodo DS performance are good, as are Hawk and a few others.

Different car but have used DS2500 for years. theoretically a trackpad but on a heavy car, there is good initial bite, even from cold and really come good with heat. They do dust quite a bit but easy to get off, easier still with a dust barrier spray on the alloys.
