In normal driving the oem pads give sharper initial pedal feel and are better overall if you seldom encounter brake fade from overheating brakes.
For enthusiastic mountain pass driving DS2500's on the front and std/performance pads on the rear are very good once they're warmed up, despite slightly less feel the only limiting factor is the discs- they do increase disc wear,dust and when fully hot a lot of smoke (this is normal.)
You can get away with std rear pads as the EBD should compensate for them but will likely work them harder so when parking be sure to leave your handbrake off till they've cooled down after a spirited drive
