German car manufacturers use pads made by Textar, Pagid and Jurid. All pads are now asbestos free and contain graphite which accounts for the dark accumulation on the wheels. The pads are very effective in terms of wet/dry stopping power (typically EE or FF coefficients stated on the back of the pads) and are reasonable with respect to noise levels.
