Back before my Saab was totaled I put the Akebono pads on the front. Initially they were as the other poster described but after about 500mi break in they were great. Maybe even better than great, that car had awesome stopping power. I once had a car cut me off running about 35mph and it was a serious panic stop. The car braked so hard that it stalled the engine (it was an autobox)!!!

I only wish that akebono made pads for the 124 4-matics.
