Never had any decent results with Pagid, noisy and nothing special if not outright poor in performance.

Brembos on the S8 and Mintex on the A8 are currently working very well.

I should also add just fitted some Brembo pads to the A2 and they are doing a good and decent job.

Though the M9 thread stripped in the upright that holds the calliper pin in

2 minutes work turns into two hours but all done and fixed none the less

Full set of Brembo discs and pads went on the S5 a couple of years/12k miles ago - easy to bed in and they're still working and looking spot on added bonus was that with discount codes etc the full set of x4 discs and x2 sets of pads was only 250, with some change.

As mentioned earlier in this thread, there have been issues with ECP owning the UK rights to market products made cheaply in Asia, that were previously known for their Germanic/UK engineering. Some of these brands still exist in Europe (e.g. Pagid IIRC) and if the product is made in Germany it's actually still the good stuff. Not sure how much of an issue that still is - sounds like it's not entirely gone away.

On the question of pad to disc life with OEM, our S5 got through 2 sets of front pads before the original discs were too worn to be able to take a 3rd. The (original) rear discs were, in theory, still thick enough for just a pad change. Luckily I decided to change them anyway, as on removal the inner face was rusty as hell and the bells were looking very crusty.
