Aren't the yellow stuff, a light duty race pad? Even thou the red stuff are a ceramic, they have a higher temperature threshold then a lot of ceramic pads.

rambleon84 I went with centric blanks for the fronts with ebc greenstuff pads. No idea if those links will be the same for your 2nd gen as they were for my '07, i think your rotors will be slightly different. I've been happy with them. The top hats on the rotors are a nice black and looked way better than the set i took off the car lol.

I still need to do the rear drums and fluids
