Wagner thermo-quiet brake pads

Has anyone used them before? looking to get new brake pads soon and these were the ones I was looking at.
Just wondering if anyone has some positive or negative reviews on them.
Thanks

Never heard of those... Akebono Euro-Ceramic pads are pretty good. I use those, squeals when it's cold... but when warmed up. No noise.

do the Akebono's have a place for the brake pad sensors?

I heard other members like the porterfield pads too. Which would you say that gives out less brake dust?

Sorry for the thread jack, I was just curious between the two brake pad

I'm switching to Porterfield next set. They seem to a better choice.

Why?

I am sick of having to wash my wheels every weekend.
I am looking to change mine too.
MB pads are so dirty. BMW seem just as bad. Is this some German car thing or what.
