Hey i got the 3 Hatch, I need to get my brakes changed and need a quick answer.... What type of brake pads should i have them put on? Semi - Metallic or Ceramic? OR would i be ok with either? Thanks.

Depends, can't really tell you without knowing the brand. Ceramics can suck hard if you buy the wrong brand. Semi-Metallic's are mostly squeaky, if you buy the wrong brand..

You probably already got pads though.

Similar interest here, my original stock pads are squeeking a bit with 16k miles. I've heard aftermarket ones can be alot cheaper than OEM replacements... what should i order, or at least, where should i look?

Good info I must say, now a quick question do you need to bleed lines when replacing front pads

You don't have to, but if you know how to then do it.

I know most people don't mention Wagner pads, but I have their thermo-quiet pads on my 3, and they are virtually silent.
