"My previous pads (purchased at a local Big Name store) were kicking up way too much dust and squeaking all the time. I replaced the front pads within an hour and so far I have been pleased. No more squeaking and the wheels are much cleaner. Stopping power is excellent. I'll give the pads some time to seat with the rotors and I will probably end up getting a set of pads for the rear. Happy with my purchase. Thanks again, AA!!!" —Erik N from Woodridge, IL bought a Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads for a 2001 Acura CL.
"I've always used EBC's greenstuff pads on my modded CL-S which worked great, but I always wanted to use the Redstuff. I was afraid of EBC's warning of less initial bite in cold weather. Since I live in illinois the winters get cold. So far the lowest it has gotten has been 24 degrees and the pads stop just fine. I'll have to see when it gets into the negative. Otherwise they are great pads for a heavy car that you like to drive fast. There is no noise and they give off less brake dust then the greenstuff. The bite on these pads make stopping effortless. it makes you think you are stopping a car that is much lighter. Will definitely be buying these from now on." —Louis L from Chicago, IL bought an EBC Red Stuff Brake Pads for a 2001 Acura CL.
"These pads are great. I have always used Acura OEM, but decided to try an aftermarket type ceramic. No dust and positive stopping like the OEM's I have used since I bought the Acura new. Great deal for the price." —Kenneth B from Cincinnati, OH bought a Posi Quiet Ceramic Brake Pads for a 2001 Acura CL, Non-Type S.
