I initially wanted to order the Hawk ceramic sports pads. The Hawk did not offer the pads for my car (later found out they do), I instead ordered the EBC Green Stuff. The install for these pads are direct drop in. Clean and simple yet, ebc does not supply shims/backing plates for these pads. They are pretty noisy at first before full bed in. When they are completely bedded in with about 700 miles of break in, they do quiet down and become suitable for daily driving. The green stuff provided my vehicle with increased braking feel and shorter more powerful braking. they do squeal and grind at times but, it is something that is associated with most sport pads. overall I would not recommend these to people who care about having clean wheels. I would highly recommend these to any spirited driver looking for more brake feel and better initial stopping.
