tested car for week now with new brake pads and i can feel much better braking now. i put Ceramic ones in front for first time. and Premium in rear. before this old pads where just premium or standard ones, and they were making all kind of noises when i was braking , was really bad stuff. now these ones are just silent. not making any noise there. and brake very good. im sure noone heard of this name out there, but here they are popular. and i used them for couple years now and i know what they are and how they perform. they not cheap ones as well cost similar to some bosch ones or TRW. and my car is not street car and im not braking hard and often, but i need proper brakes too. i read that here people just put some Brembo or TRW pads but i think thats just overkill. and then they say that they squeks. i mean they can be too hard, maybe made for high temperatures like racing pads. so i dont need any of that.

It could go in the box as well. My VSR is mounted in the engine bay.
