I put these on a 2013 sti hatch. Great stopping power and very close to stock feel. Squeal a little at low speeds. Happy with purchase.
Worth every dollar

I installed them just before a Time Attack event (21 corners track with 2 main straights and total distance per lap 3 miles x 20 laps), did the bedding in during the practice, then they worked like magic, stopping distance is impressive, doesnt fade easily and most of all not noisy, even if they are, it worth the performance.

These replaced the stock pads on my 07 STI, I'm using the stock rotors. Pads have very good initial bite, just as good as the stockers when cold (good for DD) but much better as you get some heat into them. Used them at the track last weekend and were more resistant to fade than the stock pads. The pads maintained their bite even as the fluid got hot and pedal travel increased a bit. I strangely have no noise even though I expected some, being a more aggressive compound then stock. I used NO brake grease at all on the back of the pads and even on the prescribed locations where the pads rest against the calipers. Just reused the factory shims. My stock pads as a comparison used to be noisy and then they quieted down after a track day. There was less dust on the wheels compared to stock pads after a track day. Not sure whether that's also true for daily driving, have not had them long enough to comment. I'm very happy with these pads as for mostly DD + occasional HPDE. Just the right balance and compromises.
Good for track

Extremely good initial bite but noisy at low speed, temperature not a problem
As said by other, very good dual purpose pad, noise is fixable

I bought these pads because I don't go to the track often enough to be swapping to dedicated track pad/rotors. These came recommended by several sources I trust. Overall I am very happy, better initial bite than stock pads. Less dust than stock pads. Can handle heat much better than stock pads. The downside is the noise that many people complain about, but I personally believe that this is a fixable issue. First you must you use a moly brake grease, but not on the backs of the pads (you can put some there if you want, but it's not needed). You need to grease the ends of the backing plate. It is one of the areas shown in the factory manual. Also there is another brake site online that has great photos of this, but since they are a seller I don't want list them here. Once that is done you MUST brake them in properly. I did a few hard stops and let cool in between after install and that does little to cure the noise problem. What you need to do is get them HOT. Follow Ferodo's recommendation if you can http://www.ferodoracing.com/it/car_racing/pad_bedding.htm You can get the fronts quiet easier than the rears. Once I did a track day the noise was 99% gone. It's really just hard to get the rears hot enough to make the noise go away. If you can't get to a track I recommend a steep road you can go up and down on. Get up to speed at the top and brake hard almost to stop then cruise down to cool and cool on the way up again, 5-15 times and you should be set. Try not to let the ABS kick in. This now my go to pad setup.

Q: Discs to match DS2500 08 STI 4 years agoAnswer
What disks do you recommend to match to DS2500. I have been warping dba4000 and subaru rotors with these pads. Love the pads until they warp my discs. I am careful not to stand on hot brakes in the line up and parking lot etc
A: The warping of rotors these days is not necessarily possible but what you are seeing is pad deposits being left on the rotor causing uneven surfaces. These pads are quite aggressive and a slotted rotor is recommended typically like the DBA4000. Depending on the vehicle you may want to try a Brembo slotted or Powerslot slotted rotor as an alternative. I would not personally recommend a drilled rotor if you are putting these units through a lot of stress.
