I know this is an old post, but I have the EBC Greenstuff pads on my Scort as well.
Biggest improvements?????

Reduced fade under hard braking.
Greatly increased wet weather braking.
Dramatically reduced brake dust.

Overall, Id have to say they are a great investment.
Some downsides?
They dont last as long as a stock replacement pad, and they DO increase the wear on the rotors. They eat the rotors up pretty good, but I dont think its anything to worry about. They wont get dangerously thin anytime soon, especially if they are in good shape to begin with.

I have heard nothing but good about the greenstuff pads as well. To me when it comes to brake pads and things of that nature, I don't care how quick they wear out as long as they do a good job. I haven't tried the EBC pads yet, as I am still punning Performance Friction Carbon Metallic pads. Fade is almost non-existant, pad life is great - about 20,000 in the set I have right now and they have LOTS of life left in them. So use what you can live with.

Mine were $79.00 for the front set, (which were the set that fit the car with rear discs). I'm unsure of what bareend is selling them for but they aren't listed on the site just yet.

I got my set from http://www.nopionline.com

Matt's site is http://www.bareend.com

:wink:

Edit: my price didn't include the shipping. The prices on bareend.com (I believe) include shipping already.

Well lets see... I can special order Axxis pads: "Original Deluxe" set for $80... that is for all four wheels. Axxis "Metal Master" pads...listed as having more stopping power go for $98. I don't have any experience with this company. I know they come from Australia. I would consider these a step above what you would get at checker/autozone etc.

Now... I can also get Hawk Performance pads. $145 for all four wheels.
There are two coumpounds available for the Hawk pads. So if you are interested let me know and I'll give you th price depending on what set you want.

The EBC pads should go for $178.

Keep in mind all prices INCLUDE shipping to anywhere in the continental US.

on a personal note. If it were me I'd go with the hawk pads. I've heard both good and bad about the EBC pads. After a couple years of looking at them my conclusion is they are a huge improvement over stock however most autocrossers etc preffer the Hawk pads over EBC. So for the money if you are looking for a really high quality product that will do a great job I'd go with the HAwks. IMHO

Anyone here running the Hawk pads?

Specifically I'm looking for something that give me better stopping power because the stock ones suck.
