As you know I've been on/off these forums but just noticed your signature and wondered why after recalling your review back then.

Well he went with Textars. Those silver rims look black all the time.

Wait till I tell him it was a false alarm! But I personally prefer semi-metallic over ceramic since I clean my car once/twice a month anyway.


I didn't want to mislead anyone. I am sorry if I did. What I learned is to NOT bed ceramic pads. It took me a while too to realize it.
