Bessy needs new pads

my 12 fozzy is finally at the time to get rid of the stock pads after 40K
I want a good performance break for her, and wondering if I have the same options with her as I do with a wrx?

I wouldn't run a set of Hawk HPS on there, but a set of Stop Tech's wouldn't be a bad idea.

why do you say this?
"Carbotech™ does NOT recommended XP8™ as a daily driven street pad due to elevated levels of dust and noise."
and recommended for cars 2,400LB or less and xp10 for 2,900LB or less

Looks like hawk hp is the best I can find

Or contact Pro Import Tuners on here. I personally am not a fan of Hawk anything.... EBC red's are a nice pad.

Replied to your PM!

I like the Hawk pads personally. I use the HPS on my daily driver and the HP+ on my "Autocross car".

The HPS is great for a daily driver IMO, they are virtually silent and have improved "Bite", they do dust a little more than stock pads but nothing crazy (I wash my cars pretty frequently so it's not an issue.)

The HP+ is probably a little more aggressive than you would need for a daily driver. They are fine to use daily but they make a bit more noise than the HPS does.

I know everyone has their personal preference though when it comes to brake pads though. If you prefer EBC or Stoptech for some reason, special ordering them is not a problem.
