I will be needing new pads in about 3K miles and just wondering what everyone else recommends? I am also going to change the rotors at this time and also wonder what everyone recommends? Right now it's all stock front and rear disk brakes

I use VGX pads and powerstop rotors, and have had very good results.
A friend of mine caught his VGX pads on fire after some spirited driving. I cannot recommend these at all. Stay away from EBC as well.

Good pad choices:
Porterfield R4-S
KVR
Axis Metal Masters
Hawk HP+

Go with OE style rotors. Crossdrilled does not stop you any faster, but at least they cost a bunch.

Edit cause I cn't spel

I'm sure you have some sort of data other than seat-of-the-pants to back this up?
Also, can you describe what you changed? Was it simple rotor replacement of stock size, or did you go with a big brake kit? If you stayed the stock size, but just got x-drilled, did you also change the pads? Brake fluid? Were the before and after on the same wheels/tires?
