I'm running ebay specials. Call me cheap! Slotted and drilled rotors and pads for $145 delivered. It seems to stop at least as good as stock, but the pads are wearing a bit quicker (I drive hard). At that price I'll put in pads when I need to and then next time, new pads and rotors again. The most critical (and most overlooked) thing is servicing the calipers. They need to move freely on their guide pins. The fluid should be changed yearly, and if the pads are wearing unevenly or quickly, for no other apparent reason, they should be rebuilt. Corrosion and debris will accumulate in the caliper, and even if the seals are not leaking, they loose seal tension and this can cause the caliper to drag.

Stock rotors and pads. But I might switch to an aftermarket pad if I can't get them to stop squealing.
