Hey dude, Ferodo's are a bit hard and tend to spueek a lot. Havent tried ATE as yet, but heard they are also good.
Im runing Deselra's on mine, and no problems ever, good life on the pad too.

ATE make a lot of OEM pads, never had issues with them, never had issues with Ferodos either. TRW are pretty awesome too. steer well clear of Bosch and Safeline pads. you get well over 150 000km on safeline pads, but have no disks left. and Bosch couldnt stop your car while it is freewheeling up hill.

I've had lots of crap with Ferodo before & have only used Safeline on the 160i & Bantam for the last +-10 years & only replaced disks every 180 000 - 200 000 km. Previous Safelines on the Bantam gave me almost 90 000 km & the disks that were fitted with them @ 180 000 km is still fine.
Current: 2010 Mazda 6 Active, 2002 Bantam B3 1300, 2010 Sirion 1.3.
Ex:Mazda 323s X 5 1026 000km & 626s X 3 515 000km & B2200 D/c 4X4 345 000km & Meteor GLi 1.6i 120 000km, BMW 528i X2 44 000 km
