do these pads make a squel noise upon braking? that is the most lamest 'feature' on my car.

Hawk HPS don't squeal if you go to HP+ they will squeal. I run the HPS on my 07 C2 and love them.

How's the dust level after 5k miles on these ceramic pads? I'm thinking to replace my stock pads to ceramic.

Thanks,

Definitely less dust than factory. The dust is a light gray, so doesn't show up as much on silver rims either, but it does show up on black rims., just not as much of it.

I got my pads at Tire Rack. Probably could have gotten them a little cheaper on Amazon but Tire Rack is a Rennlist sponsor so I decided to go with them.

No squeal, but I installed mine with the proper anti-squeal shims. I'm not sure what would happen if you leave them out as some seem to do.

6 months later and I'm still extremely pleased with the dust levels. You'll get a little more as they seat themselves in over the first couple of hundred miles (still less than with factory pads though). It's been over a month in my DD since I cleaned the barrels of the wheels (behind the spokes) during a wash and they still look pretty good and silver, there has been no significant dust build-up.

There is a lot of variation in price from place to place and over time. I'd just recommend a thorough web search for the best prices today... or simply use Tire Rack for a known fair price and good service as Tim recommends.

Tire rack doesn't list these pads as an option for 997.1 tt. Anyone know the right pads to order?

Thanks - Sid

Stillen definitely has the best prices for these. Everyone else seems to want $130 for the rear. Only $95 at Stillen. Free shipping too. Just ordered a set.

That's a good deal, I paid $310 for mine from Pelican.
