Heard good things about EBC Yellow but can't speak from experience. Don't touch red stuff, can't really rely on them for stopping power. I've seen them catch fire on track!

Thanks, I'm really just looking for something that is low-dusting, vs. something that offers better stopping power over stock!

Sorry dude, I meant I heard good things about yellows and low dust as well as performance .

As a tip, I would avoid anything from Mintex, Performance Friction (what I had/have now) and Carbotech if you want low dust man.

I asked this same question a couple of years back, and ended up going with Hawk HPS. During some of my more spirited drives, I have braked DEEPLY into turns (and felt the ABS kick in) and so far they've done a great job. No fade, and a lot less dust than stock.

But these are the only non-OEM pads I've tried, so there could be something better and I just don't know it.

Huh, I must be the only one that likes the EBC Red Stuff. Better than stock for both stopping and dust. I don't use them on the track but seem to be great for my DD.

Except for occasional spirited driving this car would not be seeing a lot of aggressive driving. Thanks so far guys!

I have the Hawk Ceramics in mine and I have no issues with them. My car stops when I want it to and the brake dust is very minimal. I have also slipped into the 'ABS' territory a few times in some twisties so I can safely say that yes these brakes still allow the ABS to kick in when need be.

I have slotted front rotors so Im not sure how the Hawks go on the stock rotors... I cant imagine it to be much different.
