Braking is exceptionally smooth from the very first use!
I replaced my rear OEM pads with these on a 2011 BMW 328i. I took a star from the installation as the brake pad wear sensor does not fit nearly as snug in these pads as the OEM pads (just a little wiggle now). I'm hoping the heat from that area will kind of melt the sensor in place as time goes on. Other than that I couldn't be happier with these pads. My stopping power is like new now! No vibration and no side to side pull.
