    Dingah,

    Completely disagree. OEM brakes do fade, do squeel and don't last. Or at least mine has. Hence will seek out other alternatives

    Depends how you drive them.
    If your gonna track them then yeh OEM are not for you
    But for everyday city stop and go no matter how hot or how wet or cold
    Oem are not going to bother you
    The whole reason why factory rotors are so soft compared to the old days is because of drive ability and comfort. If your factory pads are squealing then either you have used some sort of degreaser or something that has devolved all the pad grease away.

    It depends on how you drive not how fast you drive.

    No one will argue on that
    Itís the same argument with anything really
    Tires, oils, seats, suspension, track is tack.
    Anyone can put together a track car and shave a few seconds off.
    Itís the fine art of Day to day use and something that can hold it self around a race track, and not fall a part on the drive home. Thats what makes a spots car/ GT

    Sure you can put some coil overs on, Wack on your sumo slicks and heat up those metal compound brakes, overtake a few crotch rockets and feel happy. But that smile starts to turn to anger when your needing a kidney belt hitting pot holes, or hearing protection when coming to a stop light, or a bionic leg to hold the clutch in on a 1 hour drive home.

    If your not going to be doing hard braking and track time, Iíd just stick to oem. The no. Clover design can be machined to get more life out of them so I would highly suggest the standard round design. And they are way cheaper with some say better performance.

    When ya think about it the clover design goes against the whole point of having a minimum ware. I donít know if anyone can even tell if the two are made up of complete different materials but by just cutting off a few kgís ya think ya think this could compromise the heat tolerance and loses?

    Less metal means more heat

    Also looking to see what potential alternatives are. There seems to be a great variation in brake types and prices from OEM.
