I've had the pads on my BMW for about 400 miles now. Stopping power seems to be very good when cold and even better when hot. The break-in coating on the pads is interesting and seems to help "bed" the pads with the new rotors. Only problem I've had is with squealing. I've coated the back of the pads and re-coated them after a few hundred miles plus lubed the rubbing points. I think I'm pretty well through the noise issues and am now enjoying very good braking that I expected from these pads.
