I AM VERY PLEASE WITH THESE PADS. INSTALLED THEM ON OUR 2005 LEXUS SC430 AND CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH BETTER THEY ARE VS STOCK PADS.

I replaced the front rotors and pads on my Lexus SC430 sports car about a year ago with EBD Sport rotors and Yellow pads, and what a tremendous difference in braking performance this made! Faster, smoother stops. One year later, and they are still performing like new. At that time, I had also replaced the rear pads, but EBC did not make rear rotors for my car then. Since then, they do so I replaced my worn-out OEM rotors last week with the same EBC Sport rotors and new Yellow pads. I'm happy to report that the rear rotors and doing well. I can't really tell my difference in braking performance, but then it's the front rotors & pads that are most important in any street vehicle. I am expecting the pads to last longer, tho, as the dimples & grooves in the EBC rotors should aid in cooling. Replacement time & effort is minimal...about 30 min per wheel. I used the stock car jack, and removed each caliper (by removing its two mounting bolts) so that I could squeese the caliper pistons in easier with a C-clamp, and to paint them (aesthetics only...looks cool through the custom wheels I have). I did have to use a mallet hammer to remove the stock rotors, as they slightly rust onto the hubs in the rainy climate here, but that took only about 1 minute of rotating and banging on the inside surface of the old rotors until they came free.

I've only had them on for about 100 miles, but they're fantastic so far. Great initial bite, and the black rotors look significantly better than the rusted ones they replaced. I'll give an update once I get an appreciable amount of miles on them.
