I find it unbelievable that one would spend 2 large and not know what "might"
be coming their way.  I KNOW this list and others have threads regarding
squealing pads on BR upgrades.  I KNOW that I was one of the very first to put Big
Reds on a quattro almost 8 years ago.  I KNOW that I *ONLY* recommend and use
Textars (one of the main reasons being squeal), including on my own rides.  I
KNOW I've been on this list since inception.

Looking at this now, is expost facto and post cognitive disonance theory.
Put the textars in and call it a day.  Put a advisory up on the urs4.com site,
lob Tom an email or call, and put a post up with the conclusion when you get
the Textars.  Going "after" ECS is absolutely obsurd.  I put up 'another' post
speaking of how the variance in aftermarket pads and sqealing potential is
pretty high, especially compared to Textars.  YOUR WELCOME.  In terms of
'expectation' is Tom supposed to test every production run of pads?

Scott, unbeliveable?
read the posts again...its a simple matter of
perspective. My perspecticve is that of a consumer,
someone who in my case dosnt live and and breathe
brake pads, lithium grease and dust boots. My
expectation is I can buy a product that ...again in
KIT form... is supposed to be engineered for an
application. I dont know F**k All, about backing plate
dimensional differances, or evan that the Textar is
the OEM pad, I choose to limit my knowledge in this
area because, honestly Im relying on others (experts
like you or ECS) to have already done that heavy
lifting ahead of me.
One very good reason I participate on this list.

Your perspective on the otherhand appears to come from
being a servicing dealer.

"Anyone could have *asked* about this problem and
got and gotten the same response from me, and anyone
that services their Big Reds in my shop knows well my
feelings on A-M pads for Big Reds"

What good does that do me!! I wasnt dealing with you I
was dealing with Tom at ECS thus my Post.
