Review of New Brakes

I installed some new front brakes recently. I got EBC Green Stuff ceramic pads with Centric Premium rotors (4 Lug). $175 shipped from 2 vendors (Tire Rack & Autoanything).

Pro
Easy installation (true in general on the 'balt)
Rotors are electrocoated, hopefully inhibiting corrosion.
HUGE improvement in braking distance and power over stock. A 45mph stop is at least twice as fast as before.
Cleaned up look

Con
Rotor lug bore diameter is a little bigger than stock
Price is a little higher than I would have liked
Minor squeal, however I opted not to use the shims and I'm only a couple hundred miles in.

At this point, I wholeheartedly recommend.

Thanks
I always like the ads for Green Stuff but wasn't sure if they lived up to it.
