Hi Could anyone please tell me what the difference between a shimano M05 and M08 Resin Brake pad is?

I have M08's on at the moment and when I took them to the local bike shop to ask for some the same he thrust the M05's in my hand and said they will be fine!

Is one sintered and the other not?

Two minutes searching Google I found the following:

M08-resin compound (slightly harder than the M05-resin: M08 has a bit less 'bite', but wears longer)

M05 Fits BR-M515, BR-M515-LA. BR-C601

M08 Fits BR-M525, BR-M495, BR-M475, BR-M465, BR-C501.
Do not use M08 brake pads in combination with the BR-M515, BR-M515-LA and BR-C601 brake system. If M08 brake pads are used, the brake arm and caliper will touch before the pad wear indicator is noticed and a noise indicating that the pads need to be replaced is heard, and this will result in a gradual reduction in braking performance until ultimately the brakes stop working.
