Update: Brakes are back to screaming as loud as ever. Taking the front OEM pads off and will save them for dedicated track use. Looking at other pad options that will strictly be for street use. Anyone have recommendations beyond Carbontech 1521's? Don't care about dust, just want them to be quiet and not ruin the carbon ceramic rotors.

Are the Carbotech 1521s going to work with your ceramic rotors? They were designed to work with iron rotors not ceramics. The pads for the ceramic brakes are made by Pagid and when you look up pad information on their web site you will see they make pads that designed for ceramic rotors. I wouldn't worry about the squeal. With the windows closed, the AC on and radio on you can't hear them squeal anyways.

1: Do not mix different brands/types of pads front to rear;

2: Have you followed the street burnishing procedure?

3: Have you at least done some high speed stops simultaneously?

According to Adam (seller above) there are different versions of the 1521s with the ~$350 pair being safe for the carbon ceramic rotors. It would be nice if there were more options though.

I appreciate the response but the obvious stuff outlined in this thread has already been done, more than once. I drive through an area that you have to "badge-in" to gain access which means every day to/from there is a lot of stop and go traffic as you wait to badge-in. These brakes make me and everyone in line with me deaf and it's definitely not something to just live with. Swapping pads should take care of it....
