    I need some help, please let me know the best Brake pads for a 348 and where these are available. I remember reading that the 944 ts brake pads fit the car, does anyone know. I m getting some binding of the front left brakes once the car warms up. Its noticible at traffic lights.

    It sounds like you could have a calliper that is going bad. Try replacing the break fluid and rebleeding the breaks to see if that helps with the binding. Now if after you do that and you still have the breaks binding, then I would say the you need to rebuild your calliper/s.

    I use EBC Greenstuff pads, from tirerack. More dust than OEM, but excellent pedal feel and stopping power.

    I'm with Ernie - sounds like it's more than just a brake pad issue. Pull the wheel and check the calipers. Good luck.

    Hard to say diffinitively what this issue is caused by without inspection. Schedule inspection and diagnosis by a competent shop.

    Yes, 348 and 355 brake pads front and rear are the same as many Porsche 911 and 944 Turbo applications. I actually like the OEM Galfer pads, though pricey from the dealer. Many pads are good for street driving applications, one I'd recommend is Porterfield R4S ('s' stands for street). www.porterfield-brakes.com

    Best regards,

    Rob
