I am looking to get these as well. Which pads will you pair them with?
I'm using the Hawk HPS 5.0. Really like this pad as a street pad. They are nicely progressive. There's an instant bite from them with even a light press on the brakes, even when cold. But they're never grabby. Torque does seem to go up with a little heat. But hot or cold, I don't need nearly as much pedal pressure to slow down as I did with previous pads. (Stock when I got the car, Cool Carbon, then those Powerstop z26 performance ceramic pads) They're also much less compressible. So the pedal is much more firm than previous, which I also like. There's some dust, but not bad. I put about 800 miles on them and the wheels are just slightly darker grey, not dark like some performance pads do after some miles. Though I'm sure they will be if left long enough without cleaning the wheels. I just tend to not go that long.
