Details

The SP Performance Street Plus Brake Pads have a "low resin" formulation and are manufactured with a "Positive Mold" process insuring strength, quality, and performance. The OE style chamfering and slotting help heat and dust dissipation. This advanced low dust formula provides excellent durability, quick recovery, and is rotor-friendly compared to conventional brake pads. These semi-metallic high performance brake pads are formulated for aggressive street driving, have anti-noise shims for smooth quiet stopping, and will also keep your wheels clean. Street Plus brake pads have proven themselves in all types of weather conditions to stop better and last longer than traditional brake pads.

High Performance Semi Metallic Friction.
Formulated for aggressive street driving.
Positive Mold manufacturing for strength and durability.
Low Resin formula reduces brake fade.
Low Brake Dust.

Street Plus pads have a low resin formula which has a fast break in period. The high-friction compound delivers superior stopping power at a wide temperature range.  It is manufactured with a positive mold process which uses virgin friction materials (no regrind material). It is put into a press at 500 tons while being heated, creating a very dense formula without any air gaps. The more dense the friction, the longer it lasts.

This positive mold friction requires 70% less resin. The low resin results in superior brake performance without making a hard and brittle pad which can cause noise and brake glazing. ("FF or "GG" co-efficient.) Not only will you get longer pad life, but also longer rotor life.

Tradition methods of pad manufacturers use a process called flash molding. This low pressure molding requires a high content of resin to make the material flow. These are often high in code, but lower density pads will result in poor performance. With extensive testing, we have found that the Street Plus pad works in both cold and hot conditions. Other inferior brands may have a higher co-efficient such as "FF" and "GG" but will work only when the pad is very hot. When the pad is cold the result is scraping of the material which greatly reduces the life of the rotor and causes poor stopping.

Customers' comments

Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

I had a bit of disappointment today when my new hitch arrived - it was not the correct model for my car.
In retrospect, I looked back at the ordering page and found that it was my mistake but I could see why. I searched for a hitch for a Mini-S R53 and it took me to a 1001 which is for a non-S R50. The model numbers for the hitches and the cars they match up with were at the very bottom of the page, which I didn't see when ordering. It would have been very helpful if the drop-down menu had not just the hitch model number (1003) but the car model as well (R50, R53...) to help avoid this confusion.
It cost me return shipping and another week or more of wait. Not fun.
