Welcome, and agreed - pics or ban 8-)

I think I've got OE Textar's in mine, great feel / bite, not much dust surprisingly, some fade during DE's but more related to needing a bleed.

I run Ferodo DS2500's in the Brembos my //S8 and I looooooove them. Dusty, and have to lube them 2x/yr (@ snow tire change over) to keep them from squealing but that works. They're wicked grabby, I found myself stopping short when I first put them in. They will fade after lots of hard braking, need DS3000s for real DE work but those squeal like hell and need to be warmed up.

Stay away from Mintex red box - gooey and literally toss off chunks of goo onto the wheels - good grab but fuch that... they literally melt (ran them in my urS6's Big Reds)...

Hear good things about the Hawks...
