When it comes to changing the pads I'd rather put on the OEM version. Does anyone know what pads were put on our cars?

Log into "Mister Auto" (App or Browser) I find they have a wide selection of brake pads and disc they also give the original Citroen part number

Yes. Do go for OEM. I tried to save a few quid by opting for "Essentials" brake pads from dealers. End up have all four replaced with higher quality ones LESS than a YEAR! The ones I got were loose and made wierd noises when turning and reversing.

I've used Bosch pads. Much cheaper (half the price) than from the Citroen dealer, probably the same as the brakes are Bosch.

Pads are great.

Whilst certain brands of brake pads may appear last longer if they do its at the expense of the Brake Disc. Each time I have had to replace the Original Pads I have had to replace the disc which shows several mm of wear, so I would rather change the pads more frequently than have to replace the disc due to wear
All pads have to meet EU / UK standards you only have to look at the cost what the Citroen dealer wanted to charge me and the cost what I bought 2 Disc and set of pads costing less than 100 euros

Asbestos is banned from brake pads these days, so the discs wear more quickly. It's standard practice to replace the discs when the pads are worn to the limit.

This is the original. Seems to be branded as "ATE" but also has "Ferodo" printed on it. I believe they're different brands?

Due to a scraping sound I took my car to my Citroen dealer who said due to the very bad scoring on one disc the two Rear disc would have to be replaced plus the pads and the cost would be high, but if I would supply the parts they would fit and charge only for fitting so I took up the offer and bought the set of disc and pads for 80 euros and they charged me just 62 euros for fitting ( plus a free car wash) WHAT A BARGAIN !!!!

I realise I have a very good dealer so definitely will be on my Christmas card list this year

ATE are part of the German automotive manufacturing company Continental. They probably outsource the manufacture of some brake parts to Ferodo (based in Chapel-en-le-Frith, Derbyshire.)

I'm in the market for new Pads as well.... my 2015 C4GP has done just under 28k miles annd I'd say there are a few millimeters left front and back but not much.

I was looking at Pagid that seem a well established/known brand from what I can tell, they are actually marginally more than Bosch pads. The online car spares places also sell Eicher that I was a bit suspicious of being as they are a fair bit cheaper.

Over the past 12 months I have replaced both front and rear disc and pads at a fraction of the cost that Citroen would have charge me and most of the parts and spares I have bought from Europe my latest was a front seat heater module which my dealer wanted 95 euro I bought from the Netherlands at a cost of 60 euro
