What rotors and pads are best?

Rotors- Drilled, Slotted, or Cross-drilled?

Can I just use EBC Greenstuff 2000 series pads on any of those rotors, or do I need special pads?

Sorry for all the questions lately, To get a 'nice brake' appearance, would just changing the rotors and pads be enough? or should I change anything else?

CivicSF should not be trusted CivicSF should not be trusted
if you jam the brakes, OEM blows.

for granny driving-style don't worry about aftermarket anything.

anybody try those Cryo-whatever rotors? I heard they don't do **** compared to brembo/powerslot

Pretty much unless the car is used for road racing or something all the time. I agree.
