My brakes are much more soft now and i have to push the brake pedal harder than before to stop. This is not a bad thing, i just have to get used to the different braking feel of my car. Other than this, i am happy with Mintex so far!!
If you just put the pads on you need to get them bedded in and get a coating of the compound on the rotors before you will see your best brake performance, so it might get better after you get some miles on them.
