That's 100% false. They are softer than semi-metallic pads and wear the rotors less They do however generate more heat and can, under constant hard driving, potentially warp the rotors. But that's why high performance brakes are generally drilled to allow for better heat dissipation. They still generate dust it's just much lighter in color and less sticky s wheels stay clean longer.

well I hope you are happy and keep us posted as if the pads are as you say many will be interested including myself

I did once, and had a bad experience of changing on my M6 BMW and I killed my rotors with it, especially if you do quite a lot of town and if you speed fast ( highways with no speed limit around here )
so with that disappointment, and 3200 euro lighter, I've put all back OEM

this is my rotors pads today ( all original still from the factory) the car is almost 22000 miles .. the rotors have not so much worn and the pads still fine.. the car will be 3 years in June
For my personal use, I am very satisfied as it is, although the rotors and breaks seams to tiny for such a car ( visually and under high-performance driving)

I have just installed EBC Yellowstuff pads front and rear on my 2015 SQ4. Pedal feel and response are great, much better than the ceramic Brembo (Lexus is250) pads I had in the front, but the pads are very dusty. Just an FYI for you all for aftermarket performance pads. They are about $150.00 per axle, so significantly more than Power Stop but less than OEM by quite a bit. I feel they are a much better alternative to OEM pads, as they have a great feel that gets lost with most others but the reputation of the brand and the performance is there at a much better price point.
