    HPS 5.0 Pad review
    Wing inspired review: They slow the car down. They make smoke. Not as awesome as HP+ but still better then OEM. No bus noises.
    Conclusion: Performed as expected.

    Anyone i spoke with said they are a small step above hps with less brake dust and good street/cold bite. Lots of good comments. Obviously not a track pad but a good street one.

    Yep, That and the new Street/Race are getting great feedback so far. Glad we have them.

    Was wondering about the street/race compound. Looking for something street friendly (unlike Wing, I care about noise) that can see a couple lapping days a year.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    I wanted to try them on the STi bit did not find much details on them other than a few reviews in the US.

    I now know of someone that runs them on his Civic Si and he likes them alot, waiting to see if he gets squealing issues now, if they stay ok after a few days/weeks off track of daily driving, i'll spring for a set.

    I think it will still be prone to squealing under light load, but every application is different.

    I'm going XP10 or XP12. My Akebono ceramics were a great street/occasional track pad, but I'm going on 9 events this year, and they're used up.

    I drive a car with a Coroplast sunroof and a crazy carpet rear bumper repair, so I don't give any fucks about noise or dust.

    XP12 on the BMW? You running rcomps? Is the car street driven?

    I run XP8 on the Miata with RS3s, but it's also like 2400lbs. They seem to be just right. Only 160km/h on Rocky Road but I've turned a 2:38.

    Yeah BMW is 2800 or so. New tires are imminent, may be R-compounds or RS3s or Rivals. I hit about 150 at the end of RR, best time on all seasons is a 2:45 or so.

    Anyways, I was having trouble getting the Carbotechs in a hurry so I'm just gonna do HP+ and see how it goes.

    You might be happy with the HP+ for a while. They are a lot cheaper and I found them to be a good value. I ended up wanting more for the GT series. Longer/harder sessions (phrasing...) and I wanted emergency stop capability.

    I ordered my carbos from Frank Ewald. Great service but $$$$$. I wish MANL would become a dealer so I can give him my money instead!

    Carbotech's are awesome. But if you are worried about noise and dust, you should look elsewhere. But then again, just wax/seal the wheels, you can get rid of the dust easily. If you are lazy to do it yourself, get Andre to wax/seal the wheels for you

    Ive checked with every performance warehouse in Canada to take on Carbotech, not one wants to do it for some reason. Sucks, because we do get calls for it, but I still get asked for Hawk 9 out of 10 times.
