So, apparently I'm 85% worn on front pads.... after 5,600miles! Impressive I think? So, who makes front pads for 400? Are they same fitment as anything else?

I was able to confirm the part # with Essex Parts Service in NC so I wanted to update this thread in the event anyone else runs into the same issue. Ferodo DS2500 Front Pads Part # - FRP3084H

I spoke to Dave @Seriouslylotus yesterday afternoon and having considered everything, have ordered a set of the DS2500. less dust than PF, cheaper than PF, still great braking performance etc.

had both the PFC08 and DS2500 on track before 

the PFC bites quicker and stronger making them better track pads

but on the street they are so noisy and bites too quick making traffic stop and go a nightmare 

I would say use the DS2500 if you do more than 95% street 

but since changing them isn't too bad might just get the PFC08 only for track use

I think that may be the part number for S1 Evora pads. The ones you want if you're after DS2500's are here as posted earlier in this thread.

I ve got a set of 3084h lying here hence the question.

Is anyone able to confirm the actually pad part number for the ferodo DS2500? I am in the states so I am trying to find a distributor over here and I cannot confirm the part number anywhere. My dealer only has the part number for the kit with clips and pins which is twice as expensive as just the pads.

@Seriouslylotus might be able to help as you're a US customer it wouldn't make sense to order from him but he may be able to help with part numbers.

@Seriouslylotus  If you could confirm the part number I would really appreciate it. Essex Parts seems to be the closest supplier in the states and they have the pads in stock. I just don't know if they will fit. Their online tool doesn't have the evora 400 in it which isn't too surprising;

Ferodo DS2500 Front Pads Part # - FRP3084H

Bonus:

AP Racing Caliper # - CP7545-106 

That might help find pads by other manufacturers that fit as well.

Now if we could get the AP racing part number for the discs..... 🤗  I’m dreading the day I need new discs at £1000 each.  

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

When I get the new pads and swap them out I will examine the rotor for a part number and update the thread if I find anything. I know the shipping to the UK wouldn't be great but Inokinetic in the US brought a pair of Ultradisc front rotors to market for the Evora 400. At $1250 USD/pair they are a bargain compared to the stock rotors from lotus. They are also only slotted and not drilled so there is less of a chance for cracking.

I wish I seen this before I did a track day. This specific day is a Lotus experience day run and supported by the Australian Distributor. Simply Sports Cars.

Before the event I noticed a slight vibration, but on track within the first section the vibration got bad. Annoyingly the rotors and pads were replaced 2000 Ks ago when I bought the car from Simply Sports Cars.

The dealer support team, by sheer chance, had a new set of rotors in the truck, which they installed with new pads original pads. i just got the bill. 😱 I knew they would be pricy... I am now booked in for therapy. 

Interestingly I had to bed the new rotors in and during the next track section I did, all good.

Im getting the rotors back and will look into new rotors to fit the hats.

Fantastic day thank you Simply Sports Cars.Fantastic car thank you LOTUS

Ferodo: FRP3084 (Friction material number for DS2500 would be "H") - https://ecat.ferodoracing.com/product-line/car-racing/brake-pads/code/FRP3084
Pagid: 4345 - http://www.pagidracing.com/en/product-search/race-products/racing-brake-pads/shape-detail/s/shape-4346.html
