    VX Berlina - "Vanessa". All cars should have names
    I am in (desperate) need of new front brake pads on my 2001 VX Berlina (series II) sedan. I live in the country, and travel more than 600km a week. About 500km of that is on winding, poor quality100km/h roads with a fair smattering of stupid roos I often have to brake hard to avoid. There are a grand total of 36 sets of lights I confront in any given week, so stop-start braking is negligible.
    I would appreciate your vote on what brand you recommend for my car, whether or not you currently use those, based upon your personal past or current experience in similar vehicles.
    Many thanks.

    Didn't the argument in your other brake post help you?
    It's Bendix for me.

    Bendix or Remsa. Remsa would do that job easily but you would have to wash your wheels every 2 weeks.
