Installed new brake pads with new centric 120 series rotors. Good stopping power, no fade,low noise, but lots of brake dust @ 4,000mi on pads rotors still look new. I guess the dust is a trade off for saving the rotors.

So I bought these thinking they could work as a double duty pad for daily driving and autocross/HPDE.
First off, they dust about as much as OEM pads, which is a lot.
Second, the bite and pedal pressure required started out pretty good, but after a few thousand miles and a few autocross/track events, the bite has reduced quite a bit, so where I have to use a lot of pedal pressure on the street.

Compared to the Axxis Ultimate pads I was using previously they dust more, stop worse and are wearing very quickly.
They feel a lot like the Axxis Deluxe pads (not good) but dust way more.

I will probably try the Hawk HP+ or HT10 pads next.
The only good thing I could say about these is that they are very low cost.

For reference I am the regional BMW club autocross champion. My car is stock except for coilovers and UHP tires.

The four pad for the front brakes only came with one pad with the metal warning scraper. I bought these pads in the past and they all came with indicators on them. Dont know if they all come with that on them but the back pads I purchased a long with the front came with the metal on them.

Recently have had some brake shudder, but it s been a year since rotors/pads were installed. Brakes were bed-in according to StopTech website. Braking performance was great before the shudder and still very good currently. I especially notice the difference in pedal feel and brake response after driving a stock set-up in other Jettas. As for the brakes they ve been low on dust and quiet which was somewhat a surprise. Great heat resistance too, even during trips to the mountains in western NC. I do notice the rotors get rust very quickly after rain and a lot of it compared to the stock rotors, but it s gone after a few stops, which is why I gave an 8 for appearance. Great for street. I can t say about AutoX, as these would bump the car up a class, so this car isn t currently used in AutoX events.

Big difference in stopping an corner breaking. Dust reduction is amazing compared to the stock brakes.. The rotor s look great but serve no real purpose for street performance, however for autocross there great!

Stoptech performance street pads - great bite, noticeable difference in braking power even with them being on the rears.

Centric plain 120 series rotor - great rotors, have bought many sets of these for all my vehicles. The black rotor hat eliminates nasty rusty look. Cosmetically they are great and performance they are great.

I went into my search for brake pads wanting a set of pads that would have good initial bite no matter the temperature and good fade resistance. These pads exceeded my expectations. I needed a set of pads that would respond quickly to brake input since I drive on I95 everyday between Baltimore and DC. Around here you need brakes that perform well and don t give up the ghost slowing from 75mph to 0mph. Most pads will do fine, but I wanted the best and got it with these pads.

The only downside is they do dust a bit more then the OEM pads, but performance is much better and the dust is very easy to clean off the wheels. Also, even when itís 20F outside they still have very good initial BITE. Canít say much about the noise of the pads because they have been very quiet since I put them on the car. If anything they are quieter then the outgoing OE pads they replaced.

It is very important to bed these pads in when they are installed. I believe my proper bed-in resulted in the quietness that I describe. Google "Stoptech pad bed-in". The first two or three links should point to stoptech s website. That should describe in detail how to properly bed in the brakes.

I must say again these pads get the job done at any temperature in any season from 20F to 90F. They grab hold of the rotors and bring the car down to the speed you need it to or even a sudden stop without any completes or objections. If that s not what describes the ideal brake pad I don t know what does.

I should also note that I installed the centric plain 120 rotors and ATE blue brake fluid at the same time I replaced the pads. They all gelled nicely and really gave me the performance I was after.

These pads were recommended to me after a set of Hawk HP+ pads had destroyed a new set of rotors in one track day after a 500 mile break-in. These pads will not disappoint on track or street. Strong initial bite, smooth and progressive, excellent fade resistance and kind to rotors. They re very dirty but it s a trade-off I ll take for a pad that s quiet and smooth on the street but can stand up to 4 or 5 track days a year without quitting.
