These pads bite, and they bite hard with no signs of fading. perfect for very aggressive street driving or autocross / light tracking. warning they dust quite a bit during street use.
Pretty good brakes, just like oem. Dust is a little more over the oem, they squel at times but is very rarely and minimum, does not bother at all.
the previous owner of my x installed hawks pads on it and the i did not like that brake pads at all. the bite was weak and i had to put more effort on braking, but with the ds2500 the bite was nice and the stopping power was great.. i was expecting for the brakes to squeal after a few weeks of use and it hasnt squeal at all for me...i highly recommend this brake pads!!
I`ve been using those pads for about a week, and I`m pretty happy with them. They work really well when they`re cold and even better when they get hot. really recomend those for street use/ trackdays.
Don't have a ton of miles on these yet (2012 STI hatch), but they seem to provide a significant improvement over the OEM Brembos. True they are a bit noisy at times, but this is mostly at parking lot speeds when it is really cold, and it doesn't happen every time. I did use the stock shims and spray-on "brake quiet" on the backings. The unavoidable noise is a worthwhile trade-off in my opinion. Some report less "initial bite" vs stock but I haven't noticed a big difference myself. Definitely better braking power (paired them with high-carbon centric blanks), adjust accordingly on snow or ice. I'm on snow tires right now so I haven't been driving hard, but at daily driver pace dusting doesn't seem any worse than stock either. As of right now, I do plan to buy these again next time.
