Any experience with Pagid S-sport pads?

I mostly autox, so am looking for some aggressive street/dual purpose pads with reasonable quietness on the street.

I'm a track regular, while the Pagid S cannot match dedicated race pads, they do a good job. For road use and autox (where speeds aren't as high as the track), they are perfect as the increased bite, pedal firmness, modulation and thermal capacity over the standard pads is significant. They squeal a little, but it's not at all loud, and pedestrians won't bat an eyelid; you will hardly hear it with the windows up.

A big bonus of Pagid S pads is the fitment quality. As the OEM manufacturer for BMW, their pad design is spot on, unlike other reputable brands that sometimes can't get it quite right.

Thank you for the feedback. I am also looking at stoptech street performance pads as they also seem to have very good reviews. Do you happen to have any experience with those as well?
