Brembo street pads??

I recently swapped in new front pads from Akebono and don't much like them. Brembo offers a pad for the e70 but I can't find any feedback on the web. Anyone here ever tried Brembo street pads??

I wouldn't step down to the Bridgestones either.

For a non-RFT try TOYO Proxes STIIs. I'm on my second set, and I got 50K miles out of the first set.
