EBC website says that product code for s14/s15/r33/r34 sumitomo calipers is DP41200R

however this shop: EBC YELLOWSTUFF FRONT PADS DP4775R FOR NISSAN SILVIA (S15) 2 99-2002 | eBay

has these for sale- DP4775R and claims they are for an s15 fitment and the EBC site says they are for a 99 nissan altima.

Do they run the same size brake pads? i have no issue paying £150 for a them but if i can get the same ones for £95 then it would be silly not to. Any help would be appreciated.

Ok so after a heated argument with a guy named Jazz who i will name and shame from ARGauto these are indeed the WRONG pads for S15's. I told him they are wrongly advertised as they are showing for s15 fitment. needless to say he wasn't too impressed.

for anyone who wants to know- DP41200R is the EBC code for yellow stuff front pads for nissan sumitomo calipers (s14/s15/r33 & R34 non brembo)

I've got the EBC yellow stuff on my 15. Personally, if your using it on the road, I would go for the Green stuff. It takes a while to get enough heat in the pads for them to be effective and they're not that great unless they're dead hot.

In fact, I think my Kuga stops quicker!

I find the EBC Yellows pretty good for fast road, however I have larger 315mm front discs, thus the pads are not standard either...

Mine are 345 mm brembos with the EBC yellow pads. I've always had trouble with the pedal feeling spongy until the pads warm up and it needs a bit of a kicking to warm them up.

Perhaps I just don't drive it hard enough!

i would steer well clear of any EBC pads, i had no end of issues with them.

DS2500's no argument, a little dusty but they are awesome pads
