Powerstop Evolution brakes - My impressions

I just replaced the oem BM brakes on our 2007 335i sport as they were down to about 20% pad left. I ended up buying Powerstop Evolution Z23 carbon fiber ceramic brakes. They did come with the caliper pin lube and anti raddle clip hardware too.

After now driving a couple hundred miles, comparing them to the oem BMW brakes they do not "bite" as quickly. The old oem pads grabbed quicker and with less brake pedal travel. With that said the new pads may not be completely broken in yet.

I will say the braking action is linear and there is still plenty of stopping power. Just a difference on how quickly and forcefully the pads brake compared to oem. There is also almost no dust with the new pads too which is great.

Overall, I would recommend these pads to someone who wants to retain good braking power, linear braking force and very low brake dust. The only trade off that I see is initial braking bite. Just thought I'd throw this out for those people in the market for new pads.
