Brembos or standard brakes? What kind of driving are you going to be doing? What are you looking to gain or change by using a different pad?
Help us help you.

I'd like to know any recommendations as well, my car has the brembo brakes and I wasn't too impressed with them. Maybe the pads are worn out but I dont hear anything, car has 36k miles. Car is a daily street only but I do brake hard often going through the twisties and such.

Hawk HPS 5.0 is a good choice for street only use.
Nothing will beat a lower temp range track pad (ex, carbotech xp8) for stopping power and fade resistance on the street, but they are noisy and very dusty. I wouldn't recommend them for everyday use unless you enjoy cleaning wheels often.

Usually if you change to a different type of pad, you want to get a new rotor as well so you can properly bed the brakes and not worry about incompatible compounds.

No one can really answer that for you, it all depends on your driving style. My wife can wear out a set of pads in 10,000 miles. I can make them last 50,000.

I'm a bad example. I road course my car so my stock pads (and rotors) went quick.

Stock brake pads suck balls. The front wore out in about 50k and the tears are about to go out at 57k.

Braking wise they suck even worse than the brakes on my F150. No bite at all and after I changed out to some decent (but by no means the best) aftermarket pads the braking improved noticeably. I think I got the PowerStop Z26 Brembo pads and even those are twice as good as the stock ones.
