Very good value for money but don't expect to receive any of the other stuff like new clips, springs, anti-squeal shims that you get with the proper Mazda pads that you need to really do a good job. I used the old shims etc and despite copious amounts of HMP copper/graphite grease on the shims, the brakes are squealing annoyingly. Having said that, the installation was an after-work rush job and I didn't get the chance to meticulously clean the old setup before installing the new pads so maybe that has caused the squeal. Performance seems to be better than the old pads, but they were badly worn.
