I used the Mintex Red Box. They are fantastic. Low dust (really makes a big difference) and the performance is comparable to the factory pads.

If you get them, make sure you get the Red Box. The regular ones have not gotten that great of ratings by others on forums.

Don't know about the brand, but lower dust is nice. The only draw back to them is they are a harder material and will wear your rotors a little faster than stock pads.

boywonder,

I installed PBR Deluxe pads on an E-Class Mercedes I once owned and was really impressed. The OE Benz pads were driving me crazy with all the dust. The PBR pads were a GREAT improvement! I thought they performed well also. Finally, they were rather inexpensive. Where did you find PBR Deluxe pads for Boxsters? For some reason I didn't think they were available.

Thanks,

ddb
