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.
OK. My math should be off a little. You've asked for a second opinion while I can see from your post above that you are actually searching for the 4th opinion.

Like Doru said above, "Everyone is free to do whatever he wants with his hard earned cash." I agree.
