Default Brembo brake pads for GP-chassis Subaru XV/Subaru XV Crosstrek/Subaru Crosstrek

Upon searching for brake pad information on the Subaru Ascent, I somehow managed to stumble upon some Brembo brake pad information. Why this deserves this thread, some may ask? Because the Brembo brand has a strong reputation, and I figured some who respect and/or are fans of the brand would be interested.

Considering these are OE substitute brake pads, they will likely not feature severe anti-fade characteristics. In fact, I would vouch that these brake pads are likely OE-replacement grade, rebranded Ferodo brake pads. For those who require heavy-duty/track-capable brake pads should refer to my aggressive brake pads thread for proper guidance on severe-use brake pads. These are, at best, for the mild spirited driver.

Unsatisfied with just the OE-replacement brake pad finding, supposedly these listed part numbers are of the Brembo Sport Brake Pad variant.

Listed as working best within a range of 200-300 degrees Celsius (392-572 degrees Fahrenheit), the Brembo sport brake pads seem to have characteristics not that different from the Ferodo DS2500.


This is just a guess and would require verification from Brembo, but they are listed for the GJ/GP chassis Subaru Impreza, the 4th generation Subaru Impreza. According to various sources I've investigated, they share the same exact brake pad shapes. What gives me more confidence is that the non-turbo gasoline version of the 4th generation Subaru Forester on the SJ chassis, has the same part numbers listed, which also shares the same exact brake pad shapes.

EDIT:
I forgot to mention, the Brembo Sport brake pads have a maximum operating temperature of 1112 degrees Fahrenheit (600 degress Celsius), so it can take some track-day beating. Such specifications are not nearly as bad as I had initially believed, and I must give Brembo some more credit than I previously did with their Brembo Sport brake pad compound.
