Carbotech XP12 ???

Hello,
Anyone tested the Carbotech XP12?
Do you have good comments for these? In canada I can get them for half the price of the Pagid RS19 so they could well be a good option for me compared to the OEM pads for track only usage.

Thanks for your help in my quest for the best price/performance choice for track pads for a E92 M3 with no special track setup other then 275/35R18 Toyo RA1 tires on dedicated track wheels.

Why not the XP-16? The E9X is a very heavy car and with the increased grip of the r comps you are going to want a very aggressive pad. I would also suggest getting them for both front and rear.

Have you ever tried them? If so, would you recommend them?

I havent tried them, but alot of people rave about carbotech. I have to get some pads soon with the track season just around the corner and I am also in the process of picking.
