smdzucladoc is on a distinguished road
I put on the porterfield 2 and a half yrs ago and it is working well. I had squeals with oem as well as the terrible dust. Now minimal dust and also no noise. I did not put any anti-squeal or shims.

Performance wise if is pretty comparable, maybe just slightly less initial bite.

But a quickjack for $1000 and diy. With wheels off it is like a 5 min job on each caliper. Pound the two pins out, remove bridge piece, push calipers back in. Slide out old pads and out new ones in. Put pins back and done

I swapped oem for porter field to get rid of the squeal (and also dust) to porter fields. Diy was not hard, and I donít care about brake sensor wires. The porter fields are near perfect, initially had maybe 5% of the noise but that completely vanished over a couple years. There is about 10% less initial bite to them you will notice right after the switch but soon forget about and the car still stops fantastic for road driving (I would not prefer these if I tracked my Aston though, which I donít as I donít fit with a helmet). Anyway, get the porterfields for a road car, they are way cheaper too.

btw, I have the oem pads that look like new off my car (2014 v8 vantage) that had 4K miles when I got it, will sell cheap if someone wants them, pm me.
