I am retracting what I said in a prior review. During my last brake pad replacement, I ran into problems with brake calipers. Through a process of elimination 1) possible bad resurfacing of the rotors and 2) possible bad calipers, I eventually found that the calipers were bad. Because I didn't resurface the rotors and HPS 5.0 pads after the multiple changes, the brakes didn't work properly. Hawk recommended 200 grit sanding of pads and rotors and rebedding as recommended. IT WORKED!

After some assistance with the online customer service, we did confirm fitment for all E90 335i sedans (info provided conflicted with the manufacturer's application list). These pads DO come with the required pad wear sensors, which was also hard to determine based on the manufacturer's information, and some other vendors online showing other Hawk pads with images of the sensors. All in all, great product from Hawk, would recommend these over the standard HPS pads for a DD.

I like them much more than stock pads because there is less brake dust on wheels. I can't tell the difference in stopping power as they are installed on rear axle.

Purchased these Pads for Subaru forester as a test pad and I love the way the stop the car. It is not a squishy feel on the rear but rather a solid slowing down like I was looking for. Now I will be buying the front kit with rotors because I like these pads that much. I would recommend to these to anyone looking to upgrade from stock.

the brake pedal feels firm with the Hawks 5.0. They are slightly better than the oem brake pads. To me the brakes work better when they hear up, So they are perfect for street racing
