Not sure of the other pads since have not tried them before. The higher temperature pads may need some warning up....
Trestor was cheap, RM90 only at PH Auto, Seapark. I think I read it here from your recommendation then I went on and tried it. Good pads but dusty haha!

I think TRW was dusty, but DTec should be cleaner and might perform better than standard ones.

What I do is I clean, clay and wax + coat my rims. The brake dust washes off with some high pressure water spray

TRW make oem pads for a lot of manufacturers. They are quite good in terms of entry level pads.
How much was Ultrex though? The price seems to be way higher than say TRW or Trestor.

Almost double than Trestor, just for the 550c.

Time to try out a new one. Maybe TRW DTec next. It's RM130 for my Neo.

I'm curious to find out how TRW DTec fares. It seems the reviews are not too bad.

Is DTec their only variant of brake pad ?

Well dusty pad i could live with that, good bites always bring me more smile than clean wheels with poor stopping power.

Yeah, the Ultrex pads are more expensive than the big brands like TRW and Trestor purely in the economical scale. TRW and Trestor have massive plants producing millions of pads. Ultrex is a niche brand like Endless and EBC so their pads are more expensive. But you get what you pay for imho.

My 4-pot pads for my skyline brakes last time was in the region of 500+. It was still going strong when I sold the pad together with the calipers after a year of usage and plenty of Ulu Yam runs.

Did Trestor say anything about what was replacing it?

I ask for EBC yellow before and it was RM650, so those really niche market.

I email Trestor but no reply. According to CVkit, since factory now in Thailand they have to apply for some test to approve the product for their sales in MY. However the entry level and semi metallic are still being sold.
FMP the manufacturer produces Bendix, Trestor and Mergent. Even in Mergent website there is a blue color pads but now no longer highlight with any data. At least Trestor Advantage still in website but not on sale. Maybe time to try Bendix Ulitimate, their top range....
