Oh, and regardless of what you choose, make sure you bed-in your new pads properly for best performance. Hawk recommends 6-10 moderate stops from 35mph, then 2-3 hard stops from 45mph, then park and let them cool off completely.
I was on the fence between the Hawk HPS and Ceramics. I went with the ceramics in the interest of less dust. Probably wouldn't have been a big deal with my dark gray wheels.

+1 on the proper bedding procedure. You can feel the brakes grabbing better towards the last stops. Good advice which I forgot to mention.
