Replacement Brake Pads

I've been looking around for a while now and I cannot decide on a decent break pad. I don't like the OEM because they dust to much but their stopping power is very nice.

Anyone have any suggestions for pads similar to oem but with less dust?

Edit: And rotors too, would be great

I just put on z4 35is rotors. You can get more info on ECS site. Depending on your budget, take a look at Racing Brake rotors, expensive but high quality.

I am using stock pads but put on SS lines and the set-up is excellent. Don't forget fluid upgrade if you have budget.

Hawk hps pads sound like they have similar characteristics to oe with less dust. They'll be my replacements Lot's of reviews of different pads on this forum. Z435is front and oem rear rotors seem to be the best option.
If you're going to track your car then look at Ferado or Porterfield pads.
