I agree! I have Akebono Euro pads on all four corners of my 2002 S500 with MB brand rotors and am very satisfied. The lack of dust is exciting and I've had no squeals. I can't tell any difference in braking from the OE pads I removed.

Unfortunately, they are not available for the front of either of my 1992 cars...
