i like 'em.

not too dusty
work fine when it's cold as hell (single digits F)
relatively cheap
seem to be wearing well
bite like carbotech panther plusses did (you can feel the mu creep up as they get hotter)
zero fade while driving anything remotely sane on the street (ie i haven't faded them yet)

01-02 front: DP41134R
01-02 rear: DP41293R

03-05 front: DP41661R
03-05 rear: DP41687R

now, i had to use ebc pn DP41293R for the rear of my car which is normally a pad fitted to subaru impreza wrxs before 2003.

i had to send back ebc pn DP41687R which is what i originally received (and was specced for my>02) does not fit because subaru changed calipers in the middle of the 03 model year.

other than that, i had zero problems ordering them from autoanything.com, and even then i can't really blame them for subaru's crazy parts swapping. they were reasonable about the return of the unused merchandise.

any questions, just ask.

rotors are plain old oem subaru... h6 rears.

the dust is much less obnoxious than the panther plusses i had on there, i think partly due to the fact that the friction material itself is lighter in color.

obviously the dust accumulation depends on how you drive, and how high your dust threshold is, but imho it's a very reasonable amount considering the pad's intended use and characteristics.

I suppose you have a colder winter than we do or no? I'm just across the border on the west coast and thinking about these vs Hawk HPS which seems to be readily available and more of a street pad
