Have had a set of front EBC drilled and grooved discs fitted for a couple of weeks now. They constantly make a very faint noise (bit like the noise that kids' bikes make when they stick a playing card in the spokes!)

The guy who fitted them tells me that this is normal, and that these pads "never quite come away from the discs", which surely isn't right :confused:

Can somebody that has EBCs confirm that they should be noiseless when your foot is off the brake, or is this guy telling the truth?

Yep. Think I'll be ditching them next time round for a straightforward Brembo setup :)
