I like EBC Greenstuff and Mintex Box Red - they feel good cold and hot.  In several cars, over the course of about 3 sets of Mintex's and 7 sets of EBC, I did get one bad set of EBC's that would not stop squeaking no matter what I did.  For me, oem Audi pads and rotors both only lasted 20k mi, this stuff goes 35k mi.  I've read in a few places that German pads are required to contain graphite by TUV, hence lots of black dust.  Goodbye German pads forever.

My driving is not aggressive, so the car must have come to me with some incredibly soft pads.Your thoughts are greatly appreciated, thanks.~ Doug
