go with EBC Redstuff, they give good performance with low dust. But seriously, OEM is mor ethan good enough for standard applications.

becareful because the Rears (or maybe the fronts) are very difficult to find on the web, had to buy and recieve multiple refunds before finding a place that actually had them

when sourcing any part I usually go to the manufacturer and get the part number for what I need. All auto parts places will stock the item with the Original part number. Then I punch that into summitracing.com to make sure its the right part and if they dont have it in stock i go looking somewhere else for it. Thats what I just did with the pads and rotors I bought. Rears were in stock at summit so I got them there. But front pads and all four discs had to get elsewhere. my .02
