I used these on my Legacy GT Limited. A little noisy, *good* on dust, nice bite.

Overall, they were a good upgrade for me (with dBA street rotors).

Ah, they grip really well, very popular and will increase grip(you'll feel it) they do generate dust, but also incresed grip at what cost? They arent organic - metallic pads they are really harmful to the life of your rotors - So I personally feel there are much better pads out there.

I haven't had rotor issues on my RX8 and I like the improved stopping. I can live with dust. What do you recommend for 335s?

For the 335's right now, its still a wonder on who will make what pads. I still dont have a clear picture on what pads are available out there for the 335's(they have an odd shaped) so far centric has some pads not my personal favorites. For track/increase performance I like organic pads, like Ferodo/Pagid/Axxis. I expect this year to be some good developments in braking for the E9x's (BMW already has some great breaks on their systems, and it only got better now that that they are working with Brembo).

Hi, Did anyone try the Hawk hps pads? I am waiting for a review on them also. Do anyone know the Hawk hps pads or the EBC yellowstuff pads better? Thank you for any input.

I guess it's too early. I replaced my front pads with oem. Over $500 for that and new brake fluid. Since I think the oem brakes are adequate but not transcendant, that hurts.

try the Porterfield R4-S street pads. Less dust, greater braking.

Btw if anyone wants the hawks, we got them in-stock. You should definitely see an increase in braking performance, I'd like to get them on someone's car let them review them.

I've always been a fan of the Hawk HPS pads. I don't get any noise out of them, plus they don't dust much at all. Good performance too. A good street/auto-x pad.

Hi, Ron. Do you have Hawk HPS front and rear pads for our 335i or just the front pads? I am ready to place a order if you have both.
