Brake pad recommendation

Can anyone recommend brake pads that would be an upgrade from the stock OEM pads? I need to replace mine. Ive heard that the EBC redstuff, and wearever gold are a good upgrade. Any opinions?

I am currently on Bendix ceramic pads
If your model is also on 325mm rotors front and rear then the part number is CFC1838 and CFC1821 . These are Ceramic Compound pads low dust and quiet. Braking is better than stock.

I am planning to upgrade further to Powerstop Evolution Z23 Carbon Fiber + Ceramic pads. Those part numbers are Z23-1838a and Z23-1821

If you are even more hard core go for Z26 and Z36 pads those have metallic shims that aid cooling of the pads for performance driving and tow.

Hey eavr4. Thanks for responding. I wound up ordering a set of front and rear EBC Redstuff brake pads on the 4th. I should be getting them on Wed. I was told I needed 2 sensors as well that cost $38 each. Im debating on either doing it myself or just pay this one shop $250 that isnt too far away from my office to do both the front and rear brake pads.
