Stick to OEM rotors, there's nothing better out there especially if it's just for DD. For pads there are many companies out there, one that I have done a fair amount of research is the Stop Tech Street Performance pad. Really good pad for street and occasional track usage. Low dust and the do not squeal like the Hawks.

I would recommend if you're just going to daily driver your car then use Hawk HPS. If you're thinking about autocrossing/daily driving I would recommend the Hawk HP+ or Carbotech AX6 but as Dawid said they do squeal when they are not hot enough. I've learned to deal with it but it can be annoying.

my HPS are fine on street and worked well during autox or some fun mountain road driving. don't squeal but they do seem to produce a good amount of dust. if you're doing brakes, look into the tyrolsport bushings and SS lines right away. cheap, but do make a nice difference in pedal feel.

Stock rotors for sure. They are very durable. A lot of track guys swear by solid rotors.

Power slot slotted rotors is what I always liked. No rust, and no noise with my hawk hps pads. About $340 shipped is what they run brand new.
