Older car here. I'm assuming that you have OEM pads still, I have no experience with those. When I had Hawk HP-1 the noise was really annoying. And the dust. And they don't stop well first stop when they are cold.
Changed to Carbotech 1521, and made sure to put the anti-squeal compound on the backs during installation. No squeal. Way less dust. A little noise but they're Brembos, you always get the slap/clack when going from backing to forward too. Similar stopping characteristics when hot or cold. Not a track pad, but I use them for autocross, and like that I have to use a little more pressure than hot Hawks as it gives me better control.

If you overheat these in street driving, you need to start tracking the car (with track pads) and get that **** out of your system. :cool:
