Has anybody used these before? A friend of mine put them on his STI and he loves them. I don't know why they only offer the rear though? And nopt the front as well.<p><A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/brakes.jsp?&make=Hawk&model=HPS+Street+brake+pads&group=HPS+Street+brake+pads&autoMake=Volvo&autoModel=S40+T5&autoYear=2005&autoModClar=AWD&perfCode=S" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tirerack.com/brakes...ode=S</A>

I had them on my WRX, they were very bite-y and had real nice feel but they dusted pretty badly. However, the OEM pads on my S40 are pretty dusty so it may not be any different.<p><A HREF="http://www.hawkperformance.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.hawkperformance.com</A> has a part lookup so you can find someone who actually sells these.

Re: (Crashy)

I used hawk HP+ on my civic, amzing pads. Stopped the car very quickly, I could feel blood rushing to my forhead with R compound tires on. At one point I stalled the engine for some reason (under hard braking). I didn't forget to put it out of gear, it just stalled. Maybe the oil rushed towards the front part of the cylinder. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Awesome pads, no complains except they got a little noisy towards the end. I will use them again.

The thicker one is for 16.5" brakes, it says. The thinner one is for all others.
