I could never really tell a difference with my butt-o-meter. In the end, I had to look at what I was using the car for and make a choice based on that like I would with my tires. Since most of my driving is highway commuting, I just went back to OEM. I need the brakes to be great for that one panic stop, and felt the OEM pads responded better at this.
Now, sustained performance driving where I'm beating on the brakes? Well I have Ceramic on my Mustang with C5 brakes and they just bite hard no matter how toasty I get them.
