    I just ordered the powerstop brakes. Have you guys that are using them noticed any difference in stopping ie fade or anything. And r they quiet. I have 4000 miles and my brembos are starting to squeak and Piss me off. Squeaky brakes are one thing I can't stand along with the brake dust

    I'm interested in other people's experience as well. The dust is really annoying but I'll deal with it if swapping them out will cause squeak or degrade braking performance.

    Aarcuda- Have you done any aggressive braking on your stock pads prior to swapping them out?

    no not really. To bed the brakes they want you to stop aggressively like 5 times in a row from like 45 or 50. then again at a slower speed. And I bed those suckers well. by the end I felt the brakes werent stopping me too well but you get to cruise (without braking for 5 minutes to cool them. Since then, theyve performed great but i havent repeated the bedding process. I still need to change out the backs so I get to try it again. just havent done it yet

    I have had mine on for about 500 miles now. I love them. Considerably less dust and I find no difference in the performance. No fade at all with them. I really loved how you can change out the pads without having to remove the calipers. That's just awesome.

    I've had the Powerstop Z23's squeak only when:
    Wet after a car wash for just a second.
    When cold for just a second or so.
    Other than that, they have been great, no noticeable difference.(except no dust:D)
