Please recommend me less brake dust pads!

not looking for superior track use, just daily driving needed.
with OEM rotors or equivalent level rotors preferred as well as the pads.

AKEBONO EURO CERAMIC, have not washed my BBS wheels for 3 weeks.....initial break in (bedding) is very spongy, but after a week of use the brake
pedal is firm, but has less 10% of initial BITE when brakes are applied then the factory BMW ( which is made by TEXTAR )

good luck
