Mintex (red box) Brake Pads

so i've been looking all over for break pads for my E36. i've heard alot of opinions, and read alot of reviews.

as far as pads go, there are a shitload of companies out there.

one thing i understand so far though, is that Mintex is one of the known and trusted brands in brake pads. their pads are high-quality, perform as well as or better than OEM, and create very little brake dust.

i found someone on eBay selling Mintex (red box) front pads for $55 USD shipped. i believe this is quite a good price.

can anyone here please confirm is this price is good, and if these pads are good?

my friend that i told you about that has them, swears by them, and i believe his were like 90 dollars a set when he bought them about 2 years ago.

i found the guy you told me about im going to be buying them soon as the last of my stuff sells so i have the money for fronts and rears.

As I was walking up the stairs, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today, I wish I wish he'd go away.
