EBC Yellowstuff (4000 series) installed on all four corners.
I broke these in the evening that I had them installed, but after about 150 miles of driving around town and the highway, I think they're 93-94% broken in.
There is definitely some extra bite there, I can tell because braking now feels effortless and I'm having even more difficulty telling how fast I'm going and you could say I'm getting more braking with less pedal travel.
These brakes do need to be warmed up a bit before peak grip is reached, but they warm up pretty quick. The car feels much more stable and planted during straight line braking, although I've managed to loosen up the rear a bit more during trail braking.
All in all, I think it was worth the upgrade. I'll check back in 350 miles more and then at 1000 miles.

EBC Yellows are known to squeal until they are fully broken in (roughly 500 miles street driving), also be aware that these are really dusty pads. Make sure to clean your wheels regularly especially in warmer weather. Don't want brake dust baked on.
