Which brake pads / price / where did you get from?

I'm staring at these:
Axxis/PBR Metal Master Brake Pads - Front ~ $59.95
Axxis/PBR Metal Master Brake Pads - Rear ~ $44.95

Yay? Nay?
Pagid if you want OEM stopping power, and Akebono if you want less and lighter colored dust, with less initial bite. I like the OEM pads because of the feel. Washing wheels twice a week during the summer is the only downside. Remember, sometimes accidents are avoided by inches, and with OEM pads I can lock em up at 60 with no problem. If you track the car, ceramic might be the better option.
