Harold, I ordered my second set of PFC 08's from you last month, and finally got around to inspecting them (the first set is still doing fine as the only modification to my 2012 M3).

I noted that the pads don't seem to match up...fronts or rears...here are the photos...tell me if they are correct.

Here are the rears....


And here are the fronts...



Obviously, I'm only showing half of the fronts and half of the rears, but the set seems mismatched.
Those are correct the clips are different on each side of the front and only in clip on the rears

The confusion is that they package them by inboard/outboard vs left/right like other companies. My first set were PFC01's without clips...took me a good 45 minutes of prying to get it right.

My PF-08 broke (front driver side-inside pad) into pieces at VIR. I contacted guys at PF and they were shocked and told me i heated them up too much.
they were nice and sent me PF-06 front set.
I liked how they handled it.
Be careful, it made a huge scratch on my rotor too.
I suggest you to switch to a pad with clip.

Btw, i have to give some credit to PF pads. the bite power of PF-08 was truly amazing but again, it broke into pieces on VIR at 140mph

Did PFC think that the 06's would hold up better than the 08's?
Curious because I'm about to replace my 06's (that I've been very happy with) with 08's for no other reason than they're the latest and greatest. Please post your impressions of the 06's vs the 08's.

I havent used the PF-06s yet. good thing about them is that they have clips!
PF-08 was amazing. As far as i learnt from the PF guys, 06 does not have the same bite as the 08s. They mentioned that 06s have lower bite then 08s and therefore should last longer for me.

I used 08s for i think 3 weekends and failed at the beginning of the 4th weekend. The pads still had 40-50% left in them before one of them disintegrated.
