Question Stock AMG pads or Aftermarket (Hawk)?

The time for doing pads on my '05 55 is drawing near and I'm trying to decide f I should stick with the stock AMG pads or go with Hawk performance pads. I've had really good luck with Hawk pads in the past but I'm not sure if they will have the same stopping power as the stock AMG. I do a lot of mountain driving here in Japan so having pads that really bite is very important. I also plan on doing the Goodrich lines at the same time because I have to order all the parts from the states. Might as well get it all at the same time.

Anyone have an experience with these two different pads to make a decent comparison between them?
