Not sure if it s the ceramic pads or the rotors, but I expected a little noise during the break-in period which never went away. Incredible amount of dust collecting as well. Extremely loud when braking at any speed over 40 mph. (Considerably louder at higher speeds and more extreme braking conditions.) After one year (approx. 10,000 miles of mostly short daily commutes and bi-weekly Autobahn driving at speeds averaging 100-120mph) took the car in for an overall inspection (un-related exhaust issue) and found out the front rotors are shot. Rear rotors are still okay considering the lesser burden, but are starting to show signs of grooving. Since I can t pinpoint the problem to the rotor OR the pads, I ll play it safe and purchase neither next time.
