Re: OEM Front rotors and pads in Melbourne, Australia?
I run Hawk Ceramic in my car, mainly due to the dust reduction. I now get the same amount of dust on the fronts with the Hawks as I do with the rears with the OEM, which is virtually nil. I would recommend them for a replacement. I have not really pushed them hard on the track, but I have no complaints.
The front rotors should be replaced with the DBA rotors, as they cost 1/2 of what the Brembo OEM's cost and are far better for both lifespan and looks.
The Brembo rotors are very soft, where you almost need to replace the rotors with the pads, which makes it very costly. The DBA's are much harder and will last much longer.
