I can answer that...
Installed roughly a year ago with Big Blacks, maybe 15k on them. Dust:
lots, but I think it's more rotor dust than pad dust. Noise: lots,
ear-splitting when they're colder. Pedal feel: not as good as some but
I think I might have some aging parts or air in the lines. Change with
heat: not much; maybe slightly grabbier and quieter. Fade: zero after
40 minutes of high speed heavy braking driving. Rotor wear: haven't
measured but guessing it's substantial.
