I talked to a mechanic that specialize in brakes. He said that these brake pads are very very good. They leave pretty much no dust at all. He said at first they might not grip that well. But to make them grip you will have to go down the highway going about 70mph and slam on the brake. Not to much that you'll go into a slide but hard enough. Then after that he said it will the best brakes I will ever use. They are about 100 a set. Does anyone know anything about them?

fuck I thought it was a vacuum cleaner...

I tend to find that stock E36 pads with Zimmermann rotors and stainless lines is the best combo. Just live with the brake dust, it's worth the trouble.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Dude, honestly, I would give EBC Green Stuff Brake pads a try.

-Very low dust
-Unbelievable braking from freway speeds
-Seem to wear pretty slowly, as I've had these for almost a year, and still have a good bit left. Most ultra high performance pads I've had, wear much quicker.

I've tried several brands, and these are easily the best I've owned.

When i asked about them I was told that they were crap pads. For auto-x they are horrible, you get bad break fade, ect. So you're saying the complete opposite with stock rotors?

Yup. THat's exactly what I'm saying. I haven't used these for an auto-x event, but I do drive my car in a very sporting manor everyday, I have yet to be disapointed in any way.

Whoever said they exhibit a lot fade, is smoking crack. Had they ever owned them? Or was it some place that sold something else?

That's BMW jargon for "I rod the snot out of it" :P
