I am not a fan of EBC. They dust and are a hard on rotors. They are popular in the UK since they are made there.

I do like Hawk pads though.

The HPS will stop better than OEM pads. They are equal to OEM pads or maybe a little more aggressive when it comes to rotor wear and they dust a little less. These pads can be noisy sometimes.

I used the Hawk Ceramic on the rear of my M3 before I installed a BBK. They are very easy on rotors, create about 1/3 the dust of OEM and the dust easily washes off. Not sure how well they stop compared to OEM since I had them on the back only, but I think they are close to OEM - maybe 10% less initial bite.

Right now I am using StopTech Street Performance on the 650i and they about equal to OEM in stopping grip, have practically zero dust and are easy on rotors. Also zero noise.
