Default Looking for some reasonably priced good pads

I am looking for some reasonable pads for my daily driving. No track use, but I tend to go crazy on the streets. Any ideas?

I just put some EBC Redstuff on the Jetta and have been real happy with them. They bite well cold, have low dust, and are rated for heavy street and light track use.

I had the Mintex on the Jetta before and they were good pads too. They were dusty though and one time after a few laps at SOW they overheated and I thought i was a goner. I was really pushing them hard though.

I am gonna install my Red Box pads here in the next few eeks. Along with them, I am installing these brake caliper bushings

http://www.detroittuned.com/shop/?productID=421

From what I have heard, these give some great brake response and need minimal servicing over the life of the product. If that is true, well worth the $50 imho !
