The monoblock design in the front makes pad changes a real pita. I was at Road America this weekend and could outbrake ANYTHING on the track with my APs. i would routinely pickup 3-4 car lengths on each corner.
My red AP Racing BBK has held up very well. Im guessing you have the black calipers then, no clear coat on them.
