IMHO, Porterfield Carbon-Kevlar is the only way to go. They have the bite and feel of OEM, but with very little dust, they're kind to your rotors, and if you r're relatively nice to them (i.e.: you're not sporting one of those 'I brake for radar' bumper stickers), you can easily get 40 to 50k miles out of a set, yet run fast and hard.
