Take a look at Hawk Performance brakes. They have several options, from oem street to race including ceramic.

When done, no matter which compound you get, make sure you follow the 'bed in' procedure .... it does matter.

Ceramic works well IF they are up to temp. If they're cool, as in a long hiway drive, you have to step HARD until they warm up then modulate your foot pressure or they'll put you into ABS mode. They're good for frequent stop driving. Also, if you don't use them hard every now and then, the rotors will get an uneven brake deposit (blueish coating) that will make the rotors feel as if they're warped. Easy to fix, several hard 60 to 0 stops (just this side of ABS use) will rebed the pads to the rotors.

One thing I've found to be true, it's more important (cheaper) to be able to stop fast then to go fast. Quality costs more up front but is much cheaper in the long run.
