Pagid is not on the top of my favorite pad to recommend list because it is OEM for Mercedes, BMW, Saab, Volkswagen, Audi and others. Pagid is one of the only pads I feel comfortable recommending because it is an OE pad and it has the OE pad pedal feel and braking properties.
One example is on the 1993 and later Mercedes W-124 series cars. No brake pad works like the Pagid and the original Mercedes, because it is Pagid. I have sent the best brands I know to customers with that car and the pads squealed. My recommendation is use Pagid or OE Mercedes on the 1993 and later W-124.
