I went with the ceramic pads and have been happy with them after almost 50K miles. Less dust and they stop well. They don't seem to bite as quick as the OEM pads which gives the brakes a slightly different feel. You have to use a little more pedal especially when braking hard. As for price I think they were only about $80 a set at Advance Auto. Have only replaced the front rotors so far and I don't remember them being priced any more than similarly sized ones for my other cars. Of course you can pay big $$ if you go with the high performance rotors. I am waiting for the ceramic rotors to become affordable. Probably be a while
