Front Brake Pads

Post by PoppySheaf » Thu Apr 04, 2019 11:28 am

2008 XC90 AWD 3.2L

Can't remember exactly what pads I put on the front a couple of months ago but I'd like to get something that stops better.

Volvo OEM pads always exhibit good stopping power. The downside with them is they tend to be incredibly dusty and your front wheels will look black in no time.
