I would probably go with Textar, but chosing brake shoes is like chosing shoes in general. It's an individual taste. Buy whatever makes you happy. This is assuming you are not tracking your car, which puts things in a whole different category.

textar is oe...pagid is reputedly another supplier, using the same compound, but I'd heard they're in the same building...something like that. Odd...who knows.

Textar is oe...no doubt about that. I believe SolidJake has used pagid...maybe it's jurid. Minox or something like is also an oe compound.

I'm sure any of those are fine...but I'd always say textar just because I'm like that!

Textar or Pagid is fine. They'll probably dust like stock pads...if you want something with less dust, the Akebono Euros are pretty good.
