So with that said, they're good pads, you just need to change your driving style (like pump the brake once, and on second pump they frigging bite. As for emergency situation, just slam on brakes and you'll hang on your seatbelt... literally 2 secs later.

As with anything it's a compromise, but don't badmouth it because it's far from junk (:
That's hard to say...
How many regular standard drivers will actually warm up the brakes before stopping...?
Is it really worth it for a daily driver...???
Especially if the driver has kids in the back seat...?
I know, because I have kids, and would I like it not being able to stop while they are in the back seat...?
Um, no.
Is it worth risking...?
Um, no.
