I'd like to try more aggressive pads. The three I have an eye on are EBC Yellowstuff, Hawk HPS and PFC. Anyone have experience with any of these? Any others?

I'm using EBC Yellow stuff and they work great. I went from not to good on braking to great. I don't have any experience with the others. I followed their break in steps to the letter, which is a lot of driving with very mild braking: I think it was 250 miles very easy braking, then 5 very aggressive brakes from 60 MPH to 40 MPH, then cool down drive. I'm getting a fair amount of brake dust, but they said that this is normal until full break in.

Another pad is Carbotech. I've used these on my cars for 20yrs. Currently use XP10 on front and XP8 on rear. This is on a roadster but would do fine on the coupe as well. I use the same compounds on my '02 Mustang track car. They will dust more than some so just keep your wheels clean. ;) Forgot to mention, they do stop!

I am on my third year of using EBC yellow and still love them.
They do have some brake dist, but it's worth the stopping power with manual brakes.
I have used EBC on my vehicles for quite a while, always been satisfied with them.

I'm currently using Carbotech CT627-XP8 pads on the rear, and Ferodo FRP3082 pads on the front.

Apparently Hawk HB655X.620 will also fit on my front calipers.

So far we have two votes for EBC Yellow and one for Carbotech.

I wonder if any of these others would make any material difference in stopping power compared to what I already have...
