So far these pads are better than the OE pads and much better than another brand that I tried and trashed due to a brake vibration problem that developed. One of the desirable features of EBC is the bedding-in coating applied to the face of the pads. It removed the film that the other pads put on the rotors and eliminated the vibration. Be advised that it takes about 500+ miles for the pads to bed-in. During that time you will see a lot of dust (that bad film coming off the rotors). Once the bed-in coating is gone the braking action is smooth, quiet and more consistent than the original semi-metallics.
