all new pads are s**t, anything high in metal content is s**t, they eat rotors and make grinding noises from the first time you use them hard until you replace them, and they fade bad from the heat they generate, if you look hard enough you can still find the old bendix standards which have asbestos in them which in my opinion are the best pads for thier price, cleaner, quieter, and stop time and time again no matter how hard you use them

As much as you might want too...

My cars weird because I get a lot more brake dust on the back. Could be just the different compounds in the pads...

no i only use bendix as i couldn't find an ebc dealer with decent price apart from hightek and they are an 1 hour drive, so i just got a mate at repco to get me ultimates.

I have heard the Greenstuff are just as much a rotor rooter as the Ultimates are ... the EBC Blackstuff are still pretty decent pads and bite quite hard ... less dust ... and are much kinder to rotors.
