Yeah I sold my XP before its first brake service. imo the stock brakes were weak and fade prone when pushed hard.I slowed down from 110 mph and there was alot of fade. I read ceramic is the only way to go?

Now that this thread came up, my ceramics are making a slight sequel at times, on the passenger side and just bought a new pair yesterday($51) So, so much for lasting. Might just be the inboard pads because the outboard pads are looking ok. Let your know when I get time to replace them. I used NAPA Carbon/Ceramics and dont know if they are the same as straight Ceramics. the pads have about 18k on them and Ya, they were worked hard and put away wet.
