Default which rotors / pads for daily driver application? 2014 Q50 Sport

I need to replace the rotors / pads on my 2014 Q50 Sport AWD.

I am looking at rockauto and interested in purchasing either:

Power Stop Autospecialty Rotors + Power Stop Z16 Evolution Ceramic
or Centric Premium Rotors + Centric Posi-Quiet Ceramic pads

I am also seeing Bendix rotors - not sure how good these are?

Any other suggestions for a daily driver that won't break the bank?

Also considering purchasing from Amazon prime. Any other vendors to look at?

I got Raybestos for the front and rear. Pretty good. I believe I go the rears off of RockAuto. Fronts from Amazon.

Rockauto is a great place to look for replacement parts.

I'm always a fan of Stoptech rotors on my cars.

I replaced the rotors / pads a few weeks ago.

I noticed that the pads that I removed were Raybestos. Is Infiniti using Raybestos as an OEM pad with the Akebono brakes?

I've always used Stoptech drilled rotors front an rear with Hawk HPS 5.0 pads on the sport brakes and had nothing but positive braking experiences. The new HPS 5.0 pads are definitely a game changer and they last almost twice as long as stock pads.

I was planning on doing slotted Stillen rotors and EBC Redstuff pads, but at 25k miles the service tech yesterday during my oil change said my rears need to get done ASAP, and the fronts are shaking and that'll get resolved. Since I don't have time to round up my friend to do a brake job, I'm just having the service department do them since I'm pretty friendly with them. But if anyone has comments on the setup I just mentioned for when I need a full brake job I'd appreciate it!
