Where did you buy them and for what price?I recently switched to DBA slotted rotors and Hawk Performance ceramic pads. The pads have created significantly less brake dust and also feel smoother when braking than the OEM Brembo pads. Might have marginally less initial bite but I really haven't noticed much.
I bought both my rotors and pads from KNS Brakes (excellent company imo and the other reviews for their business were excellent).Where did you buy them and for what price?
i bought it there (RockAuto)1001 is the FMSI number (industry standard pad shape number) for the 4-piston Brembos on non-V models. Your V uses FMSI 1405, so most (but not all) aftermarket part numbers will include 1405 in them.
Many online parts catalogs do a poor job of differentiating between different trim levels for a given model of vehicle. It's up to the consumer to know what they're looking for and make sure they get the correct part. Sites like rockauto.com that show pictures of the different pad shapes will help you figure out what's right (even if you don't buy from there, it's a useful resource).
Why do you think that "Standard brake" set seems to be correct? I don't see 1405 in the part number for the "Standard brake" pads, do you? There are plenty of other pads on Rock Auto that do have 1405 in the part number - compare the shape of any of those to the Akebono 1522 pads and see if you still think the Akebono "Standard brake" set is correct.i bought it there (RockAuto)
Gave only attention on "with brembo brakes"
the other Set what seems to be correct was with the Text "Standard brake"
