This can be noticed first stop in the morning, and occasionally when getting off the freeway. Heavier pedal pressures are needed.

And they are noisier than stock.

That said, they are much cleaner and a good choice. And in normal use they stop well. But if they were perfect in every way, wouldn't everyone on the planet (including BMW itself) use them? Everything is a compromise.
