Friction level cold is about 10% greater than BMW OE. Friction level increases with heat which makes them excellent as a daily driver and also even better performance once heated up for more aggressive driving. They are very easy to modulate and very comfortable to drive. They do not offer the boat anchor out of the window bite that a few may prefer but instead are very smooth and very linear with very good stopping power and also very rotor friendly.
+1, my next upgrade too to Cool Carbon once my OE pads wears out.
