Great Stopping Dirty Little Street Pads

EBC Green Stuff pads are high coefficient of friction (0.55) pads for everyday street use. On my Audi S4 they work very well cold or hot, with very noticeable reduction in pedal force compared with OEM or high metallic pads.
I do not track my car, so it rarely sees repeated high-speed braking, and fade has never been a problem. I have gotten them to begin to fade only when driving extremely hard with downhill grades - situations where OEM metal pads had faded completely to useless.
EBC claims an "award-winning feature of being LOW DUST", but these are some of the dirtier pads I've ever used. Clean wheels show grey within 100 miles, and I have to wash mine weekly if I want them to look good.
Brake rotor wear appears to be similar to metalic pads, and on my car and driving style these pads lasted 30,000 mi.
Bottom line: these work so well on the street that I put them on my daughter's car and I just put another set on mine.
