brake pads

Which should I do in your opinions should I go to the dealer spend 250 for brake service or buy the pads off of mpx. I do know how to change pads I don't want to spend 250 though if I don't have too that a lot for something that I can do on my own or are the stock pads better than the ones mpx are selling?

J pEx is on a distinguished road
stock are brembo off the charger R/T and brembo makes the brakes for just about every high end race car in just about every type of racing, i am sticking with the guys that make the brakes for the lemans cars that run for 24hrs and the formula one cars that hit over 220 Mph but thats just me

Take your pick.

Pick your pad depending on what you do.

If you just drive around town, are spirited, and do a track event or two a year, go with any of the ceramics.

If you track the car hard and often, step up to the EBC Yellowstuff.

The pads on the car are very good, but are geared much more for hard use. They can take the abuse of track racing. Any cheap over the counter pad (if there are even any available) will not.

I'll be getting the EBC Redstuff pads.

Click on the link.

I drive my car aggressively, but do not use the brakes aggressively. If you're not using the brakes hard like you would be racing on a road course, don't get track pads. They will never get up to temperature on the street and will provide worse stopping performance.
