Thanks Dave - 
I did a bit more reading and research. For my driving style with this car the UFOs are perfectly adequate. I've had no complaints whatsoever at the stopping power.  The rotors are in good shape and I'll just budget the money for new ones when the time comes. Fast fade and poor wet performance are not what I'm looking for. Thanks for the insight.
