How have they been for those who have put a lot of miles on them?

Cold braking performance?
Dust?
Squeal?

Thanks in advance!

Excellent pads! From install a couple of weeks ago to today with over 400 mi, no chirping or squealing, low dust if any, and excellent braking performance at all temps. Still bedding in and getter better and better.

I have had mine on for about 4 months now - just like Abarth Five 0 say - excellent pads on all aspects. Quiet, minimal dust and bite well.

Now having a few miles on the new brakes (StopTech drilled/slotted rotors) and EBC Red's I can say I have much better initial bite, better pedal feel, acts the same cold and hot and have had ZERO noise.

I had those pads on my 06 z06 and loved them. Low dust, low noise, and good bite. If I was tracking the car is opt for a more aggressive hawk pad. Which would have a lot more dust of course
