The PF01s eat your rotors alive with street driving in cool weather. Not sure if the PF08s will do the same thing.

My PF01s lasted 2 weekends. I think the PF08 or a similar endurance pad is a better option for the E9X M3.

Same here! That's what i run and they stop great, i have the Cantrell ducting up front which helps dissipate the heat. Only bad thing is the Carbotech's do not last very long. I only get about 3 track days out of the fronts and they ain't cheap. Rears I probably get 6 or so days i guess.

Yandy. Do you just zip tie the brake pad sensor when running your pads? I have a set of carbox12/10 and im just dying waiting for the end of the month.

The PF08's will last a hell of a lot longer than two weekends. They have the initial torque of the 01 w/ the endurance (actually, longer I've been told) than the 06. It's an awesome pad. I run them all around on the E90M3, but I don't do that many track events anymore.

The E46M3 with the 06's have a ton of track time on them and they still have a lot of life left in them. PFC rotors, Ohlin SA shocks, Eibach springs, RE11s, instructor level driver.

yea, I always have my sensors zip tied, they stay out of the way and avoid errors. I'm always checking or swapping pads, so not really useful for me.

I can recommend then. In theory, they should pay for themselves over 20 years based on the current sales price...

They appear to have made a huge difference at NHMS and VIR this season to wear rate and pedal feel during runs.

I've been running PF-08's all season (4 Events)! Can't say enough about them, great/consistent bite, great life (barely lost any thickness), and the rotors seem fine.

Yup, already look into that. On my 330, I went 8.5 weekends on PF01s with my Stoptech BBK and ducts so I have no doubt that ducts will help.

I do firmly believe that PFC 01/06/08 are hard on rotors and hear crack them really bad. IMO, that's where pagid beats the pants off of PF.

I'd probably be on PF08s if I wasn't getting a deal on the Stoptech Racing Pads.

Thanks for all the feedback. Ordered PFC08s...have very high expectations! A friend just picked up Pagid RS-29s so it'll be interesting to compare our wear rates.
