Hawk HPS or Carbotech Bobcat pads are both better than OEM pads on an STi and cost less.

I prefer the hawk hps also, they make a bit of noise, not much, but they stop alot better and have WAY less break dust.

Hawk HPS, Ferodo DS2500, and Pagid RS 4-2-1 are all good street pads. These are listed in order of both price and performance.
