Also, when I see pads crumbling from the sides with plenty of material left on them, i'm not inclined to buy them again. Not to mention they gave a hell of a lot of vibration on the m3 discs.

Seems a bit pointless to me to have decent rubber at a track and pads which disintegrate after a couple of 20 minute sessions.

I like 1144's for general warm road use, they're just a lovely, consistant pad.

If you need something a bit more manly, save some money and buy some Carbotech XP8 or Xp10's, they're awesome.

(thread revival)

I binned the std Bembos in favour of some 365mm 8pot K-Sports with Carbotech XP8's. Cant fault the Carbotech pads at all. Far better than the Performance Friction pads I had previously.
