I'm using Hawk HT-10 right now, they're great on track, noisy as hell on the street, almost unbearable to be honest.

Anybody have a good recommendation for street pads? Looking for low dust and better braking power when used spiritedly on good back roads/mountain roads. Iíve narrowed it down to Stoptech Sport and EBC Redstuff. Open to other suggestions as well.

My StopTech street/sport are every bit as dusty as the stock pads, just a little different color, and though not bad have more of a tendency toward the occasional squeak.

Knowing that I'll not be hitting the track in this car,
I'll be leaning toward the reds next time.

Pad: EBC Redstuff
Suggested use: Street
Actual use: Street and spirited driving
Dust: Significantly less than OEM. I can go a whole tank of gas now and the wheels will actually still look "clean".
Rating for actual use: absolutely phenomenal pads for a street car! Less dust, firmer pedal feel, and braking performance is at least similar to OEM if not better. 100% I would recommend these pads for a street car.

Recently did brakes all around, prior to needing to replace the wear sensors. ECS Tuning, Stop Tech-sourced drilled rotors (fronts are 2 piece and also slotted) 'just because' the fronts are similar to the ones on the car (BMW performance brake kit) and did not want the look of blanks on the rear. EBC red stuff pads for street only driving.

Fronts completed a couple weeks prior to rears as one rear rotor was backordered. Not a lot of miles so far on the complete set up, but enough to get pad wear across the rotor surfaces. Even before the bedding process, the grip was very good with strong initial bite. After bedding, not a whole lot of difference noted. Braking is really good, probably at least a bit better than the OE components. Not sure about the dust yet as I haven't had them very long after bedding. Anything less than what the OE dust level was, and I'll be extremely happy!

Thanks to those who provided reviews as I used your input heavily before making my decision!

Rear pads to match PFC-08 fronts

PFC stopped making rear pads for 135i. What other rear pad would pair well with PFC-08 in the front, for track use?
My setup: stock calipers, StopTech rotors, 255/35/18 RE71R's square.

Spent a lot of time looking for a dual purpose pad. Wanted no noise, low dust, fade resistance for a HPDE day. Stock pads way too dirty and faded quickly on repeated stops. EBC Redstuff - clean, no noise but also fade fast. About to give up. Finally the new Cool Carbon ST+. Very pleased with quiet, low dust street manners. Good cold stops and good fade resistance, at least on 30 min. track sessions. These could be the elusive dual purpose pads.

Olgeezer1, I've noticed after the "10 stops from 60-5 mph" that by the 9th stop, I experienced a lot of fade. I'm not sure I'll ever need that much braking on the street, but it does get my attention. Otherwise, they have initial cold bit (but are better with a bit of heat - even by the second stop), they are quiet, and they seem very low dust compared to OE pads. Track use wasn't a concern, but I am not sure these will work on autocross sessions. Anyone tried them (the newer ceramic formulation) for this purpose?

I'm assuming we're talking about the "new" Cool Carbon S/T Plus. Not sure if they're a ceramic compound. At any rate I didn't notice fade on the break-in procedure as compared to OEM or EBC which faded after 3-4 stops. You're right of course that this will never be a factor on the street and also that they do like a bit of heat. I never found AutoX to be that demanding on brakes, probably because of the very short run times so I would think these S/T Plus should be great. I have certainly found them to be far superior to stock/EBC Redstuff on my very occasional HPDE day with no noise/dust downside.

No, I'm referencing the EBC Red Stuff that I had mentioned in prior posts. I'm really happy with them. BTW, I just had M3 RTABs installed and changed to BW braided brake lines as the rears needed to be disconnected to drop the subframe.

I know the ABS system was also bled this time, and for the first time in my ownership (4 years, 43k miles), I now have a consistent, solid pedal feel and no mushy feel. Can't say whether it is from the BW hoses or the ABS bleed. I've had 'normal' brake flushes 4-5x in my ownership. BTW, car presently has only 54k miles, so not like the OE rubber hoses should have been in tough shape. Any ideas what might have been the reason for the inconsistent pedal height/feel? Even after the initial installation of the EBC pads and new rotors, the pedal height varied and had some mushiness.
