thanks!

forgot about this thread
but I'll take a look at some hawks ....

is it worth it to get a BBK? some people said get a BBK up front and use the front rotors+ callipers for the back, is that a good idea?

it's for my DD accord so performance isn't the main concern ....

i dont know apparently im really starting to hate HAWK pads



used HAWK HPS on my last car, after working them really hard and heating them up, roughly about 10,000km bench mark they start to squeak like a pig getting slaughtered. Decide to give it another try on my new car, same thing, after about 5-6 months of driving, after some spirit driving...BANG squeaking pig here it comes.


My friend also using HPS on his mazda 3, he was mocking me the other than that my breaks squeak like crazy. Now couple days ago it started for him as well.

No my breaks are perfectly fine, took it out and inspected
stilll about 50% pads left


no more HPS for me


EBC green stuff has shit load of dust


thinking to use HAWK CERAMIC, suppose to be a quieter pad with decent bite
