I ruined a students brakes one time after I overheated his Hawk HPS pads. He told me that he had racing pads on the car so I didn't concern myself with it too much at the time but when we were done the brakes were glazed over and I ended up owing a new set of brakes.
Thats kind of interesting you should mention that, I called Bimmerworld today and updated my order to include Hawk HP+ Pads front and rear, so they should do the trick.
