I am currently using the ebc green stuff brake pads and they are just as good if not a little better, unfortianately brake dust is still there the surface area on this brakes is prity big and make a mess try to get the brake covers to eliminate the brake dust. I do recomend them and the price sounds prity good because the replacement brembos are realy pricy.

I have them on my eclipse's alcon calipers and have had no problems. There a good replacement for an oem pad, plus they have a little better initial bite. The price really cant be beat. However if you canyon carve, and really get on your brakes they will not hold up. They overheat just as easily as the stock pads but will retain more heat, being that there made of kevlar, and that means warped rotors. Trust me when I say they are not meant for spirited driving, and if you see the canyons in any way like I do than they will not hold up well. Look to something a little more aggresive.

I have the Project MU type NS front pads and they work better then stock and there is way less brake dust compared to the rear brakes. When I wash my car the rear wheels are covered and the front ones look almost clean. I paid $85 shipped for mine.

Do the Project Mu squeak as bad as the Hawk pads?

not the type NS, they are a street pad. If you get the next step up in pads from project Mu they are more aggressive and I heard will squeak but i have had no problems with the type NS pads

Yeah Im currently running the project mu b force, which is the upgrade from the ns. They squeak to no end, just like the hawks. They really arent aggresive enough. If you want to step into a street/strip pad look at the ferodo ds 2500 pads, those are pretty sweet.
