So I came across these today looking at their pads. They have the oem listed at 388 for the fronts
but then have these oe brembo listed at $62. I punched in the part number on eBay P83146N brembo and came across another seller with more info and description. https://www.ebay.com/itm/122512881756 comparable at $380 which is oem pricing. Apparently designed for North American market offering comfortable, quiet, smooth braking and cleaner wheels

Has anyone ordered these before on here? I would like to know your opinion on them do they feel any different?

Brembo doesn't actually make brake pads. Not sure who makes these specific pads but they are ceramic versus the semi metallic pad the car came with. Ceramics are quieter but they don't give the bite and repeated stopping power of semi metallics.

I found the exact Brembo's at AutoZone as well. Let me know what you end up ordering. I need to purchase all 4 brake pads and rotors. AutoZone's Brembo Rotors appear to be what was on my car when I got it and they just started their 20% off.

And now....+me watching this thread! I'm about ready to swap pads. I have the Textar pads up front and there's brake dust on the brake dust!! It's just as bad as my original pads. Time to look at other alternatives. as I don't track the car, but enjoy the more-than-occasional spirited driving session!

Somehow my pads from Lexus only lasted 1.5 years (WTF), so I've been looking at new pads as well.

How are the Stoptech pads?

Not exactly in the same price range as some of the other pads mentioned here but we'll be getting a new shipment of Project Mu Type NS pads for the IS-F in the next month or so- similar performance to the OE Brembo Branded pads with *much* less dust and no noise. Perfect for guys who want to significantly cut down on the frequency of having to clean their wheels but don't want to sacrifice the friction levels to get there.

Thanks Matt. What is the price breakdown of fronts/backs for the PM Type NS pads? Much appreciated.

I still have some new oem pads to go through and also set of EBC yellows that ill be trying out for road course when I get around to it. Im looking for rotors so ill be ordering the stock brembos, I just happened to look at pads they were selling and seemed like a great deal for anyone looking for something different since everyone seems to hate the dusting and these possibly could resolve that. So I myself wanted to know if anyone has bought these or used these.

i posted about the brembo rotors and I also ordered a set of front and back duralast pads. So far worked great for me as a daliy driver. Super low dust. No squeaking and both set are under $100. Probably wouldn't recommend for track use.

List price is $319 for the fronts and $298 for the rears but we will do what we can to make the price a little more reasonable since it's ~$150 jump over the old NS400. However, if there was indeed a quality control issue they have fixed with these new pads then perhaps it's justified but it is still frustrating for everyone.

My total for four rotors and pads under Brembo came up to be $260 shipped (free shipping).

The part numbers on AZ matches to the ones from Brembo's catalog, so these should be ok.

I bought the Brembo rotors from them which looked exactly to what i bought on eBay.
I did buy the Gold pads which so far so good. The life time warranty on the pads which is the last set of pads i will buy.
