    Your feedback on performance brake pads

    Vsport owners -

    Can you comment on the extra dust and noise that your optional performance brake pads generate?

    For those who don't have it, can you comment on the amount of brake dust and how you like the brakes?

    Any thoughts on whether this option is needed for mostly street driving with 2-3 track days per year.

    Thanks!

    They are noisy.....

    I actually didn't know that I had the performance pads installed on my vehicle, I never saw the vehicle or sticker before I picked it up. I felt like my brakes were making way too much noise, happened to look at the sticker in the glove box and noticed that the performance pads were installed on the vehicle.

    Brake dust is noticeable on the front, but I think that's to be expected on anything with high performance calipers on the front of the vehicle.

    Re: Your feedback on performance brake pads

    I can only respond to how they were on my Corvettes. You could see brake dust after 10 miles and they didn't last more than 25,000 miles, plus they wore out the rotors just as fast. That is why I didn't specify them on my order. Unless you are going to track the car regularly, to me they are a pain with no real benefit.

    Don't do it the car already has rip your face off braking power and recorded motor tends record shortest braking for a sedan with 98 feet 60 to 0 the extra inches gained are not worth the dust

    Are you referring to the performance brake linings ?

    They are definitely noisier than some other cars, but not any worse than my 09 CTS-V. Pedal feel is very good though.
