hello
went through old post and found guys asking for low dust pads for golf R along with nice grabbing power daily driver and occasional spirited driving
it seems TRW TPC 1633 FRONT AND TRW TPS 1761 REAR should be the way to go to reduce dust and have a nice linear stopping @ fair price
tried to buy , but nobody has em. any advice where to find em? thank you

FCP euro had them for my S3 last month, but went with the isweep 1500 instead, guess what, still dust, less than oew but still, don’t know about stopping power but if I had to do it again I will get the TRW and save almost $200

I've been running Centric posiquiet pads and they are great. They squeal a tiny bit under light pedal pressure but the dust is super low and they stop HARD

I see these are semi-metallic and no longer ceramic. I reached to TRW to see if they discontinued the TFC1633's.

Wow...A friend of mine just installed these based on my recommendation. I didn't notice the change from TPC1633 to TXH1633. I ordered my TRW Ceramics from FCP euro and when I clicked on the link to the original ceramics on my order the new number comes up so I thought it was the same but they are using the OEM part number I guess of 8V068151C

Confusing indeed...

Here's a report on the TFC1633s.

Tl;dr they apparently feel better than OEM with a linear braking behavior, with 40-45% less dust. But mentions that there are probably better options out there.
That was my post. I've had these TPC1633 TRW pads on since that post and I would say the dust is more like 70-80% less than stock...especially since brake-in (when they dusted a bit more). The pads are great for 90% of what you need in a pad, still highly recommend no matter what part number they call them now! Oh and btw, they are good for about 1.5 laps on a race track LOL

The problem is the new part number is not the same ceramic pad. They new number is like the OEM pad which dusts a bit more with less fade of course. But it's essentially the OEM pad. It seems the ceramic TRW's are no longer offered...at least for now...
