I'm using them on my STi, I heard the brake dust is pretty corrosive so if you have some nice wheels you better wash them often. Also, if you brake slightly or drag the brake, you will probably hear really annoying high pitch noises. Overall I don't think they are bad, at least you get what you pay for.

I just installed my fronts like a week ago and so far they are good! I also got steel-braided lines. That might have something to do wit it too tho.

I think in order for you to need better pads, you gotta get a turbo so you can acually get upto speed fast enough to have to use it?

I had Jason at Dale's do my full brakes a couple of months ago. Hawks on the rear and Sumitomo's on the front. A little bit more aggressive combo. So far, very pleased with the combo....

Exactly, from carrying more speed through the corners, and not braking

Lordco
D906M Front 50$
D905M Rear 50$
<03 RS/WRX etc.

Installed.
Very strong initial outgassing (?) on fresh rotors.
Not Impressed - almost dangerous.
After a few hundred KMS these pads are kicking it.
OK cold performance but when you get them heated up a bit.
Damn. I would say these brakes have improved the performance of my car more than a new set of tires. It feels like a whole new machine. It stops and it stops hard and strong. And even when they are stinking hot they still grip. Not bad for 100$!

Recently I added Power Slot slotted rotors and Hawk HPS pads to my STi. I'm really still "enjoying" the break-in period, but I'm not terribly impressed yet.

Good:
-Total lack of brake dust. WOW. After the factory Brembo pads, these things are a total blessing.

Bad:
-Pads are noisey, though I expected that.
-HORRIFIC "pad knock"(?). Despite following the reccomended break-in and bed-in procedures to the t, I'v developed a terrible "pad knock" under hard and semi-hard braking... which is incredibly irratating since I can't figure out what is causing it.
