I've just bought some redstuff front pads but not sure what to do with the rears. Do people run red all round didn't know if I'd get enough heat in them so thought about the blue ones which are endurance. Any suggestions will be great. I'll also be changing the thermostat and housing at the weekend as the engine temp keeps dropping.

My only experience is of the Green variety which were rather noisy when cold... %-(

Once the ebc pads run down, go for Ferodo ds2500 all round, you will not look back!

i run yellow on the front and blue on the rear....people tend to forget that the rears take a lot of stick as well....the blue do need to get some heat in them before they kick in fully....but are ok from cold

I ran red stuff all round, the brake balance was perfect but they did fade a bit when on the track.

I use Carbone Lorraine now, incredible pads :-bd

YellowStuff are probably your best bet - I've used these on the road and on track days with no fade and good bite from cold. Will most likely be fitting a set to my Z3 when I get round to replacing them.

GreenStuff are not realy much better than stock, RedStuff are a step up but as mentioned above can fade when pushed hard plus are not much cheaper than YellowStuff. BlueStuff are great but are much more track / abuse oriented and a lot more expensive.
