Makes sense, since the RWD has the larger brakes...

i have an AWD loaner and the brakes are squeaking... but the car does have 15K miles on the ODO. there's no telling what they did to this car. just realized the car is Premium not F Sport.

I wonder of the new pads (softer?) will increase brake dust?

Thanks for posting. What is an "overnight cold soak"?

I think it means when the brakes are fully cold after sitting overnight w/o being driven.

I was thinking that too, but with a weird Japanese to English translation

My favorite from that category was a Sony data center product unfortunately called the "PetaFile"

Oops

I got this done the other day, they had to order the pads. Turns out I was the first to get it done. I will update in a week's time about brake dust and squeak.

I have been driving on them for a while now.. Seems to be less dust than the original ones.
