It's encouraging to see both Carbotech and G-loc pads being available through KNSbrakes.

FWIW, I never found the original HPS pads to be dusty at all (or in ~2010 and later years to have particularly good bite either). You only got dust from Hawks in HP+ and up, along with severe rates of rotor wear if you ran up very many street miles with them.

The lower grades of track pads from either Carbotech or G-loc (with numbers 6, 8, and 10) have bite similar to HP+, still dust about as badly as HP+, but are virtually as gentle on your rotors as the original HPS compound.

Noise is comparable to HP+, which can be minimized if you occasionally do some much harder stopping than what most normal street driving typically requires. Do check your mirrors for following traffic first.
