I agree with Mike with re: to the Ferodo DS2500's.
They are noisy but grab like a whore on dollar day and will make me
carsick before I notice any fade. This with fresh Super Blue,
stainless lines, pressure bled several times, on 928GTS calipers and
the OEM 323 Brembo rotors.
Pedal feel is sublime IMO.
