+1 for Porterfield R4-S if noise is a concern. +1 for Carbotech XP8 if pips and squeaks are acceptable. Prep the rotor and they're mostly silent.

I've been street driving stock brakes with xp8/xp10 for years and they're fine for street use up any level of abuse you can realistically do on the street. Can track them as well if you're careful. I boiled my fluid once from parking the car after an hour plus session without enough cool down. Otherwise they were fine.

Quoted for truth. They don't damage the finish of your wheels and are easy to clean off the wheels. A win so many times over.
