Buy the Ceramic pads or the OE replacements only. The metallic pads will not perform to the same level plus they suck in cold bite.

I have run these for 3 years
https://www.powerstop.com/product/z2...t%20%26%20Rear
Replaces Z16/Z17
Z23 Evolution Sport
CARBON FIBER INFUSED CERAMIC BRAKE PADS
Z23 Carbon-Fiber Ceramic formula offers excellent braking performance.
Dust-free braking performance.
Premium rubberized shims provide virtually noise-free braking.
Includes ceramic brake lubricant, pin bushings and premium stainless steel hardware kit.

Low dust compared to the ultra high carbon dust from OE pads
Now are they "dust Free"? NO, but if you clean, clay, Iron-X then wax your wheels, the dust washes off with dawn and a micro fiber mitt easy. I wash all the daily drivers weekly. More in the winter

Looking forward to seeing how these perform. Can't decide if I want to have the rotors resurfaced.

Just buy new ones as machining just removes metal that would normally dissipate heat. Get the Centric high carbon or the Brembo ones.
Www.rockauto.com all under $80.00

Decided not to do anything and just re-use the existing rotors as is.

Thumbs up

Of course you measure them and after receiving a confirmation that they were indeed within tollerance, you clean them and used the correct wire wheel followed by a sanding disc to create a non direction pattern to facilitate good pad break in, or did you just hang a new set of pads and hope all works?

Unless the pads were installed backwards, you are good to go! I would recommend a good buff with a prep sandpaper disc. That would remove all the old pad materials that were transferred during braking.

From the manufacturer
3M Roloc Brake Rotor Surface Conditioning Disc Starter Pack

Contains 9 abrasive discs and 1 adapter per pack
Aluminum oxide abrasive creates non-directional scratch patterns for smooth surfacing work
Helps limit comebacks due to brake squeal or chatter
Pack includes disc pad for low vibration and easy connection to power tools
Roloc attachment allows operators to switch discs in seconds for greater productivity
The 3M Roloc Brake Rotor Surface Conditioning Disc Starter Pack contains everything you need for smooth brake rotor conditioning that limits comebacks due to poor brake rotor re-surfacing. This 9-disc pack features 120 grit abrasive discs designed specifically for use on brake rotors. It also contains a disc pad featuring the Roloc attachment for fast, easy disc changes.

Specifically Designed for Rotor Surface Conditioning
Featuring 9 premium 120 grit abrasive discs, the 3M Roloc Brake Rotor Surface Conditioning Disc Starter Pack is designed to create smooth, non-directional scratch patterns on brake rotor surfaces after the brake rotor has been turned on a brake lathe. When used as directed it cuts down the peaks that are left behind after the brake rotor turning process. Properly conditioned rotors help limit comebacks due to squealing, chatter and brake judder.

The starter pack also includes a disc pad for support and to adapt to a variety of grinding tools. All components feature fast, easy Roloc attachment.
