I have a 2012 sedan and am replacing all pads and rotors and am seeking advice. The car will never see the track but I live in the foothills of Tennessee so it may see the tail of the dragon once and awhile. I do not like the dust from the original pads. I just ran across an ad from mont motorsports for $599 for all four corners with some options. any advice would be appreciated

I just got R1 Concepts drilled and slotted for all four corners, plus their ceramic pads for $430 delivered. They have 25% off sales often, so keep an eye out.

I run these on my 2011 V Coupe, bought on Amazon Power Stop Z26-1053 Extreme Performance New Formulation Brake Pad, and Power Stop Z26-1405 Z26 Extreme Performance Carbon-Ceramic Brake Pad. I admit they do not have the same grabbing power as the OEM but brake well and there is literally no brake dust. I could not believe there could be that much of a difference, there is barely any brake dust, a regular car wash leaves the rims clean. I don't run at the track so will sacrifice a bit of grabbing to keep rims clean with no scrubbing.

Rock Auto has repeatedly offered the OEM Brembo rotors at far better prices than anywhere else. The prce varies, but look them up. This is a snip from one of my first posts here:
>>My first task will be brakes.
researching here and elsewhere I found the old Rock Auto - Brembo thread. I did the research and found that RA currently has the front two-piece 09A66513/09A66523 Brembo rotors for $169 each and the rear Brembo rotors 09A50811(one-piece) for $75.79 each. I ordered all four for $490.36
Currently, the Brembo store would cost $791.80.
a savings of $301.44
Because I'm a newbie, I can't post the screenshots of the pages, but they're easy to find.

I ordered EBC RED pads from Amazon for $152.86 & $83.83
<<<
These were the correct Brembo two-piece fronts and one-piece rears, all 14.4"
