Anyone have experience w/ Pagid S Brake Pads?

I've looked around and haven't seen any reviews for the Pagid S/Blue brake pads on the e46. I read a few Porsche guys have them and like them but the reviews didn't say much beyond that.

I had Pagid Reds from BavAuto on the front for a bit, but they were garbage - faded far too easily and squealed so I'm hesitant to try anything Pagid again. These, if I chose to get them, would go on the rear. I'm getting StopTech ST40s on the front in a little bit, so I want something a bit more aggressive, yet streetable on the rear to help balance out to the brake bias.

All I know about Pagid is that when I talked to somebody at Turner Motorsport about brake pads he mentioned that Pagids tend to outgas and work better with slotted rotors... He recommended the Stoptech for street and some track use.

Interesting...do you know if that's for these pads or for Pagid in general? I was looking on TMS' site and they recommend them for street with very mild tracking.

It seemed to be a Pagid thing, but I really don't know for sure if he just meant the ones they listed or all of them in general...

I think I'm going to go with Stoptech Street Performance. We already use Centric Fleet Performance pads on our Sequoia, which I've been told by a friend that works for Centric, is the same compound. They're less than half the price and will match the pads for the ST40s.

Thanks for the help!
