I'm finally ready to change all rotors/pads on my 98 gti 6; I've looked at some packages but before I buy; any recommendations?

I'm thinking of going with stock, vented rotors all around (I don't race...formally...) but want a good, dustless pad that won't kill my budget... thx!

ebc have Green Stuff pads that are supposed to put out 80% less dust than a stock pad. and the have "red stuff" that is their racing pad.

there is no such thing as dustless pads. As I learned from tf242 (thomas), the better the brakes, the more dust. look at benz or bmw--really dusty front wheels. If you are getting new rotors, I would go for cross drilled. they look extra sexy, plus they perform very nicely. the stopping power is soo nice.

I posted this story in feb:
ok a few people were asking about if I noticed a difference in my brakes. I def do now. I turned around after I saw a large traffic jam going out of harrisburg. I was going through an intersection, and out comes a cop with his lights on. I didnt see/hear anything. saw him, slammed my brakes, and stopped on a frickin dime. just like that. there was a cop in the passenger side of the car, who saw me coming straight for him, and I swear he must of shit his pants. seriously like that. I am not kidding. mouth wide open, eyes SOOOO big. but I wasnt scared. I was probably going like 40 or 45, and seriously, stopped in a few feet. no screeching of the rubber, just pure cross drilled lovin. I laughed the whole way home about the cops reaction, but seriously could have been pretty bad.
