Reason why I ask is that I already have a set (not installed yet) but if they are gonna be noisy all the time, then I want to get something else asap.
You get used to it. But if not tracking another pad would be a better option like Cool Carbon.

Really? I've experienced the opposite result and believe pagid yellows are very easy on oem rotors. I went throthree four sets of fronts pads on the same oem rotors ~18 track days. The E92 rotors (MY'11) are bullet proof.
