I've said it before, and I'll say it again.

For street-only daily drivers, you are hard-pressed to beat the
Axxis (aka Repco) Deluxe Organics. Not the MetalMasters.

I have them in both of my Audis, and love them to death. Quiet,
non-fade, not a speck of dust, got better than 40K in my 100Q
without any end in sight. And they are about $40-$50.
