I mirror what is said above, they're crap pads. Good for the bin.

I generally maintain the line the DS2500s are a poor pad, but that's mostly because they have a very "wooden" feel compared to many other offerings. Nevertheless, they do work and will be unlikely to cause squeal or produce too much dust. If you've never experienced braking with a set of really good pads you'd probably not think there was anything wrong with them, but once you have you are very unlikely ever to go back.

Actually, as soon as I wrote that I recalled that I'd heard similar, although I was also aware that my highly respected tuner for many years (NR Autosport) would often fit these pads to customer cars and did so because they provided least negative feedback, whether in terms of performance, dust or noise.

I just wonder if there's any truth in a whisper that I think I picked up that perhaps the compound had actually been changed over the years. But even that is the case I can't say whether that might be for good or for bad.

I have heard about pad deposit issues on another platform where ds2500 was actually used on some racing cup (Seat something IIRC)..

As for the evo I did buy a few thousand mile old set of DBA 5000 discs and ds2500 pads that were taken off the car because of really severe judder... I just swapped in a set of XP10s, did a trackday to clean the discs and after that the discs were perfect...

Ruined a set of freshly refurbed wheels for me. They were a good pad 15 years ago when the choice was that or EBC!

DS2500 are horrible pads - aways have been despite ppl on here ten years ago raving about how good they were. I know, beats me too.

I never liked the DS2500.

They leave deposits on the disk which then leads to vibrations under breaking and I hated the bite they had.

Swapped to XP10s with PFC v3 disks with goodridge brake lines and fresh RBF600 and I feel I have 6pot brakes.

Awesome bite with tons of confidence.

Only downside is noise they make which can be annoying to people outside of the car. Inside the car, roll window, A/C on and you are fine.
