I installed the following kits;

EBC Front Yellowstuff 4000 pad set

EBC Rear Yellowstuff 4000 pad set

These were ordered in Feb. 2017. I checked EBC website, catalog and also the site i ordered them from and all three sources gave me the same part numbers for the brembo equipped 13 GC.

Here is a pic of what i am assuming is either the original or dealer installed pads. I have no idea what the part numbers are beacsue i am too lazy to go in the garage and look at them. But i cropped the pic so you can see that these particular pads have "Brembo" stamped on them.

Let me tell you.... Whoever put these pads on last time went butt nutty with the grease..... I mean these things were a disaster with caked dust like an inch thick coming off the shims. It took a while but i cleaned the hell outta everything. The shims (i re-used) looked like new and had a sqeaky clean surface when i was done. Same thing with the pins and springs.

So ya, the fronts dropped right in (all 4) zero issues. The rears did not. Before i ground or filed or sanded, I got a pair of calipers (the measuring kind) and measured the overall width of the pads i had removed. Then measured the new EBCs. The difference was only .020" !!!!!!! I measured at different points... Same thing. BUT the old pads had a metal outter bracket that was rivited on and these had a small radius.... SO not only do you need to remove the .020" from the EBCs, you need to account for that radius vs. A sharp edge. All in all i removed .035" (equal amout from both sides) on the 4 rear EBCs. Basically just removing the paint. I did by hand with coarse sandpaper. Obviously results may vary.... Maybe you get lucky yours just drop in... But make sure the move freely in every way shape and form. If there is any snugness going on i would work through that.... Material needed to be removed from the left and right side (ref. Pic below) of all 4 pads.

When I installed the rears i just checked to make sure they slid freely both forward and back and side to side. Then made sure they moved up and down slightly. Basically you should be able to pinch a corner of a pad while its sitting in the caliper with. Two fingers and move it around with ease.

So in the end this is the fitment on the rears..... Close but they move free

And just use the grease that EBC gives you (2nd pic above) on those pins.

Anyway initially i have some slight squeak when coming to a complete stop. I am sure that will go away as they break in fully (only put about 80 miles on the so far). But i sure can feel a big improvement already over whatever was in there. They bite hard with that coating they have. Cant wait until they a broke in and bedded (*still not 100% sure they need to be bedded) so they smooth out alittle and i can test these bad boys out
