tried a search but couldn't find anything...

now i need to purchase new brake pads for my 03 camry and i wanted to know if i should get ceramic brake pads or just the regular OEM? i don't know the differences so if anyone can explain i'd greatly appreciate it.

also any good places to purchase?

thanks in advance.

The harder the pad the longer it will last. Unfortunately, as Newton figured out, for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. The rotors will wear out faster. Pads are cheaper than rotors.
You might want to think about changing your driving habits. You shouldn't go through pads that fast. There should be another year left on those pads atleast.It's only an '03?

part # for bendix pads are d908 the same pads are used on 2002 model camrys

Friction Master CMX908
Ceramic Brake Pad
2 Year Replacement Warranty $48.88

these are what i have on my car and they are worth every penny.
