panic stop is what was blown out of proportion in the first place

"what if I had kids? what if there were pedestrians? blah blah blah..." SLAM ON THE BRAKES! Does it stop? GOOD! Still feel @ risk? Yes?? Whoa, you must've been driving a Bugatti all of your life Oh boy, welcome to our (e39) world...

I hate to be beating a dead horse, but other folks that read this thread need to understand that ITS A CERAMIC PAD and it needs SOME HEAT to bite. In return you get a QUIET LOW DUSTING PAD that WILL impress even your auto-X instructor if need be. The downside is that they're VERY HARSH on your rotors (1 set of pads = 1 set of rotors), but they DO last longer than oem compound pad so there's a little give there.

and before we all go blaming the pads, check the rest of your braking system first.
