This past weekend I finally received my Hawk HPS pads and Brembo OE replacements. I really didn't think it was going to make much of a difference, but with DOT 5 fluid, those bitches grab. Holy crap, when slowing down from high speeds (70+ MPH) my car doesn't shake anymore. Oh, and just as an aside, my engine's turned 10 on Saturday. Stamped on the head: 94 1 17. Happy b-day to my engine, I guess.
