Love my Akebono Euro pads (practically no dust!); ordered them from Tire Rack. Used OEM Zimmerman and Brembo rotors ordered from Bavarian, but would recommend getting either rotors tahat are cadmium-plated (light goldish color) or that come with the 'hats' pre-painted. Otherwise, you'll have visible rust. Doesn't impair function, just unsightly.
