Green stuff pads question

I'm looking to get these an am wondering if they are worth it versus other pads. Anyone sporting these on there ride? For $44 it "seems" like a deal
The ad says for 93-98 but the item number/part number given in the add says ( DP21062), which will work for my 99 9-3 according to genuine saab under where they sell them. They are sold there for $75. I now the price differce is a lot because this is an auction and the buyer beware metality, but just wonder on your thoughts.

The auctions says for years 1993-1998, which makes no sense. They still made classic 900s in 1993. And from 94-96 the brakes are different than from years 1997 onwards - 1997-1998 NG900 and 9-3s use the same front brakes. I'd ask the seller to clarify what brakes he's selling.

I've got EBC pads on my car. The beak-in period takes forever, but then they perform great, its just a little noisy. As for the dustless part, this is bullshit - while they do produce less dust than normal, by no means can they claim the pads to be dustless

Look into HAWKS as well another great pad and on par with EBC's on performance.

I had Greenstuffs in my GT. I was not blown away by any attribute aside from how fast they wore out and the $99 price tag.

I have been running Hawks and not only is the price better but they bite is as good if not better and they seem to last a lot longer.

Hawk will be the pad I use on the Vig when its time.

Alot of people really like the Hawks and say they perform as good if not better than the EBC's in most cases with less dusting too.

I spent 80 some dollars on Akebono ceramics from thesaabsite.com. MONEY WELL SPENT. Completely silent, ZERO DUST SO FAR.

I think Nick's site has the Akebono's for about 75. I think Hawk is on tireracks site.
