Question Ceramic Brakes for 2003 L300

I will be replacing the front brakes on my 2003 L300 this summer and just want to be sure that I'm making the best choice. I thought using the ceramic pads would be a good idea...if anyone else has done this, can you tell me how they worked out for you? I tend to get a lot of brake dust and thought this might help some. Thanks.

Ceramics work great on the L series. We sell alot of them at our dealer over the normal semi metalics.

Happy Re: Ceramic Brakes for 2003 L300

Thanks for the information. By the way, do I need to get a different type of rotor when I use the ceramic brakes?

no but have ur rotors checked out. Because the OEM rotors usually don't last pass 2 brake jobs. So instead of just puttin a new pair of pads on and ending up your rotors needing to be replaced a few months down the road ur also goin to have to get pads again. Get Bremhbo rotors. I got 2 for 50 dollars from www.autobarn.com
