- What friction grade (e.g., EE, FF, EF, etc.) is recommended for BMW E39 brake pads (1) (2)
  • Jurid 187 (front) = FF
  • Textar T4071 (rear) = FF
  • Akebono Euro Ultra Premium Ceramic = GG
Given those ratings, you may be right - the Akeobonos just might grab differentially differently than the OEM pads.
