Default B8 S5 performance brake pad upgrades

Ok - my current pads work just fine, however the brake dust is horrible for the braking I get. I am coming from a Corvette with 6 piston front brakes and Stop Tech pads, so comparing the two braking components is like comparing a BF109 to an F22 Raptor.

I would like to reduce the amount of dust while adding better bite from cold (without resorting to Stop Tech or CarboTech AX6 pads which chew up rotors really quickly). I will probably end up autocrossing the car. My wife and I used to autocross and HPDE my Corvette fairly regularly.

I see Akebono, Powerstop and some other companies advertise their wares, but wanted to check with some of y'all and see what y'all are using. I found the Z23 Evolution front/rear kit for a reasonable price of under $500.00 US and thought that might be the way to go - slotted and cross drilled rotors, pads, shim kit and sensor wires all included.

Any else do something similar and have pics of their brake set up?
