Default New pads and Rotors what shall I get?

Well its time for new pads and rotors. I have slotted now but I want slotted and drilled along with some good cermaric pads. I'm doing all 4. I need imputs and suggestions.

The car will put your face in the dash.

Which brand on there do you have as there are several to chose from? How long have you had them(miles wise)?

I have R1 Concepts Eline slotted rotors on the truck, and OEM on the car. Both have Posi quiet ceramic pads.

Truck has maybe 10k and no issues. Car has maybe 20k on them and I think they just started to lightly squeal today. When I rotate the tires I'll check them to see if they're on the wear bars or if just the pads.

I second this. I have this exact same setup -- slotted rotors, Posi-Quiet ceramic pads -- on the Bonneville.

They're quiet, powerful, and (debatably) may have saved my life. In fact, my brakes were doing fine at 50,000 miles until I hit the town'* new then-unmarked speed humps at full speed. I'm an R1 customer for life.

Do they create a lot of dust on your rims?

That was my sarcastic way of saying they don't dust too bad.
