    Identifying front brake pads - logo?

    When I bought my S14 back in 2016, it came with R33 GTST front calipers and has had the same pads installed since then. I've been damn impressed by them and they still have a heck of a lot of material on them even after another 6k miles I've put on them, I'd like to know what they are as I would really consider them in the future. Took the pads out, but there's nothing blatantly obvious to idenitify them, maybe somewhat of a logo that someone recognises.

    The photo isn't blurry, it's just the text and logo on the pads isn't sharp. I'm seeing an "A" with half a union jack and then the word solid with some random logo of a traingle inside a triangle. Maybe someone knows instantly what company made them! Worth asking.

    Looks like "SOLID ACE" is the Brand with a bit of google manipulation.

    Spot on detective work there! now the surprising bit is that they're dirt cheap pads yet they seem damn good and seem to wear really slowly. My rear cheap brembos I put in were pouring out smoke after a hoon in comparison.

    Brembo pads are a load of shit I find, the discs are good but the pads are shocking.

    I did buy them for like £10 from amazon, but yeah they're pretty turd. Don't think you could go much wrong with a brake disc though.

    Half tempted to buy some of these solid aces for the rear just to see what they're like. I have no experience with expensive pads at all, but I didn't expect these to be so cheap in regards to their performance. My primera also has r33 gtst front brakes and compared to the s14, the brakes on that are awful. Could be a list of reasons other than the pads though.

    I think that's a partial part number as I don't see anything come up on a Google search. What makes you say they're a brembo pad?

    Ah I see. So if I was to search for a replacement set of these pads what am I better off searching for? A brembo pad or a solid ace. I can't find either tbh, found rear pads on that ebay page but didn't see fronts.

    I do in fact have a bunch of front brembo pads I purchased before from amazon but have yet to use them. I'm assuming there's a whole load of pads they do. Gonna check the part number online if I can. Don't have them to hand.

    Brand Brembo
    Model P56034

    Paid £14 a set. Probably turd. Will be fine for the Primera but the s14 probably wants something decent tbh. I was expecting these solid ace pads to be some decent brand
