Got them on my car with slotted rotors and the stopping power increased a heap.

Re: Bendix

Whats the brake dust like with the Bendix Advance pads?? I think it was Bendix ultimates that I used to have on my car but had to take them off because the brake dust was just ridiculous.

Re: Bendix

I put bendix advance pads on my TS50 and i get zero brake dust! Use to have ultimates and the front wheels would be filthy after 3 days! I think I've solved all my brake problems involving these T series premium brakes.

Re: Bendix

they are replacements for the old premium series which had occasianal problems and are an excellent street pad.

Re: Bendix

To be unfortunately opposite, I had them with Slotted dba's and the produced hot spots and made the discs warp, crap imo. For daily driving I would say they'd be ok, but for heavy street use, upgrade to ultimates. Thats what I have done, and for the way I drive they are great!

On a high note, the advance are excellent against brake dust and longevity.

Have to agree there. I've had Bendix Ultimates on for about 6 months and I'm getting plenty of practice cleaning my rims! Washed the car Sunday evening, then on Monday morning drove the car about 50kms around town and when I got home could run my finger through the brake dust and leave a clear mark. Good stopping power, though...

Think I'll try the Advance pads next change!

Re: Bendix

Blue oval you are right! The advance pads are not for the late braker and turn in style of driving. They don't like a flogging but they shouldn't wear my rotors out. Which is why I went for them. Had them in a month and no problems yet.
