Yup, I just placed an order for Hawk HP+ rears, and I plan on trying out the fronts once I wear down these Ferodo DS2500 I have on there now. No impressions until then, obviously!

If it's not too much, go with Ferrodo....I'm just trying out these Hawk's cuz A LOT of people are happy with them....even teh guy at RaceShopper suggested that I try out the Hawks!!!

I use Hawk HP+ for the front only. They are great! Yes, they are noisy as hell and wear quickly, hence extreme brake dust. I use them on my daily driven MINI S with no problems. Initial bite feels like stock or a tad worse, but just a little bit of heat is needed and they start to do their magic. I highly recommend the Hawk HP+.

*update*

I did it I installed my Hawk HP+ Pads......along with rear pads........Well inital impressions of the Hawks is like Aaron said, the inital bite is the same as the Mintex (or stock) pads, but just a little bit of heat, as in slowing from "race speeds" before taking a couple turns, and OMG!!!......I feel a HELL OF A LOT more comfortable with these pads...Now the downside....People that I pull up next to at a stop light are gonna wanna get out of their cars and bash my face in because of the banshee scream these pads give when comming to a complete stop....and for the press: "Yes, I use anti-squeal in all the right places... " I know that these pads will wear quickly, but no bother. The upcomming autocross will be the true test, hopfullly I can make then last a whole season, but I doubt it seeing as how I will be running these pads on the street.......
