Well Jared at EAC says they give up a little bit of initial cold bite, but when warmed up are better than OEM. That's a lot different than being on the highway and having no brakes, a la Doru.

Obv all new pads take some adjustment. I can live with low brake dust versus no brake dust if it means the difference of good cold bite versus not very good cold bite--nobody wants to be pumping the brakes every time they get in the car November through March. I will be using solid or slotted rotors not drilled.

I'd like to hear more than two opinions from those who have used them. I understand you don't like them.
