I dont hate it, its just that I work Mon-Fri 830-5 downtown.. I sit in traffic going to and from work. So Im lucky if my car gets up to 45 mph. On the weekends I use the truck so the 335 just sits. See what I mean.

I would definitely suggest going with Akebono pads. Ceramic pads are virtually dustless. I swithced to them a few months ago and my wheels rarely show sign of brake dust. I've gone weeks without washing my car (cause it rains everyday at 4pm here in Florida during the summer) and my wheels always look clean. However, the pedal feel takes a bit getting used to. Ceramic pads don't have the bite that metalic pads have. Ceramics are more linear. You may find yourself pushing the pedal a little harder to stop, but the fact ceramics produce so much less dust is worth the trade off.
It doesn't get to me it just gets annoying when people don't stop ya know? It's like I know what I need, I know what process I wana go in, and eventually it'll be the way I want. Great things never happened overnight lol some people are just too immature to realize this..but hey that's life lol at least I got some nice looking rims and tires for less than one rim's price cause I have friends who are nice
