Hawk brake pads

I've used these on a number of steet cars.  I've also installed NAPA's
ceramic pads on a number of vehicles, including my personal Escalade EXT
(and I hustle that around town).  I found them to be a lot cleaner, and most
appropriate with factory type rotors (not slotted).
I have ceramics installed on my mother's BMW 330xi and she's been quite
happy with them.
