Get the vesrah pads from for $80 plus shipping ($92 total
I think for both fronts).

IMHO EBC pads are the worst.  Go get some Galfer for $25/set and you'll
find yourself in a whole new world of braking.

The next step up is the Vesrah pads, but that's $135/set at cheapest and
if you're used to EBC you'll kill yourself the first time you grab the
brakes on Vesrah.
