Default 2015 S4 Brake Pads/Rotors Advise

I have a 2015 S4 and I am need of replacing the OE pads. I hate the brake dust from the OE semi-metallic and am looking at alternatives. This is a daily driver with no track day plans in the near future. Would also consider upgrading OE rotors to something cross drilled and/or slotted, but again this would be more for appearance than performance necessarily. Any advice would be much appreciated on replacement pad options (ceramic?) and performance pad/rotor combos. Thanks in advance.

Try these from ECS, Akebono. I did front rotors only. Do it yourself and save several hundred. Lot's of threads on the board w/videos.....
BTW, you still get dust, it's just lighter color and not as visible.

My advice is post this on the Audizine B8 S4 if you want to get a few more recommendations. Much more activity there.this forum is on life support.

Not a good answer GP. A better answer would be "Akebono is a great aftermarket replacement pad."

Perhaps not the best choice for all, but definitely a good one.

I second the ghostly sentiments on the Akebonos from experience.
