Before opening this I did my homework.
I looked at all past threads with brake pads keywords, but the only info I found were here:

http://www.talkmorgan.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/433644/2
http://www.talkmorgan.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/537630/2
http://www.talkmorgan.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/272232/5

And the outcome were: (but I understood the suggestions were valid for the S1):
EBC Redstuff (DP3036C)
Mintex MDB 2207 , 1144 compound

Does anyone have a brand and model that I could source on the magic internet?
I have the standard front and rear brake system of the Aero supersports, from AP racing.

These guys were helpful with pads for my Roadster. An email enquiry produced a template to confirm that the shape was correct - then they were ordered and produced in the US for me. You can choose which grade of lining you require. There's a delay of 2-3 weeks as I recall whilst they're produced and sent over - but the process was pretty seamless - and I'm pleased with the performance of the pads in terms of feel, "bite" and minimal dust production. I went for the R4-S lining. Porterfield are recommended on the GoMog site, amongst other places.

Not related directly to your post (Mine's a Trad) but I recently changed to Mintex 1144 compound and whilst I like the pads from a braking point of view, they appear to give off a lot of brake dust.

Maybe it will improve with more wear but with stainless wire wheels, I might have to seek alternatives if the dust continues.

Do you have by chance the code for the rear ones? I am struggling for those.

Sorry no, I am still using the factory fitted items.

I think I changed the front ones a couple of years ago, now after 55.000km it's (almost) time to think of the rear one.
And since I hate to rush at the very last second and it's not complicated to change them, I want to have everything at home.
