Mintex Brake Pads

Anyone have good luck with these pads?

How do they compare to Pagid / or OEM?

Brake dust?

I've noticed I can pick them up fairly cheap online so just wondering if anyone has used them. I did a quick search on it and people said Red Box are the ones to go for.

Thanks

Hi,

I've used them several times on my Esprit, but never on the Boxster (haven't needed any yet). Mintex is a well known Brand with a fine reputation. The Reds are good with minimal dust, but not dust-free. Hope this helps...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

Ok I'm going to try this.

I just ordered a set of F&R drilled Zimmermann roters, F&R Mintex Red Box Brake Pads, and 4 Sensors shipped to my door for 471.00. I'll be trying my first brake job next week and hopefully all will go well. Wish me luck.
