if you are on the i-club search for a review done by Revision...he did one hell of a write up on them...they are VERY nice brake pads and stop VERY nicely from a 100 but they are noisy...too noisy for my liking.

I've got the Cobb pads on my fronts... didnt fit my rears as i have a 98 and they don;t offer rear pads to fit the 98 models... but as for the front pads i am quite happy with them. I've got brembo x-drilled/slotted rotors as well, and the combination is amazing. The car breaks as smoothly as my dad's Lincold Continental, but with more bite if i put a little pressure on the pedal.... highly recommended :)

only drawback is some squealing... but i just carry around that break parts cleaner from pep boys for when it gets real bad :D

Do the Cobb pads cause any problems as far as warping or scoring the rotors? I can deal with dust and noise as long as there's a real difference in performance.

I was going to get the EBC green stuff. Are you saying they suck? I was just going to get them and put them on but I am rethinking this because I really need to get the rotors turned and then some new brakes but trying to figure out which ones to get that won't ruin the rotors and won't squeal.
