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.

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