The problem with recommending a pad compound is there are so many different performance variables that rarely do you find two people that like everything about a given pad. I've tried various Carbotech, Hawk, Ferodo, Porterfield and PFC race compounds and, personally, I prefer PFC 01, 03 and 05 pad compounds. For the street I like Carbotech's Bobcat compound; however, I'm currently running PFC's Z-rated street pad.
Fixed vs. removable bridge - most people prefer a removable top bridge because pad changes can be performed without having to remove the caliper. However, after having used both bridge styles, I wouldn't select a caliber based on its bridge design.
