Advice/Suggestions on Brakes?

Hv 99 M3 cabrio (E36) that needs new rotors/pads. I don't track/motorcross my car. Mainly wknd driver that I do drive spiritedly on occasion. Should I go with OE replcmnt rotors, Slotted, Drilled, etc? As far as pads I'm looking at Hawk HPS Street, Akebono Euro Ceramic, Axxis/PBR Ultimate Street, etc. Anyone have any suggestions?

OEM or better. Brakes are the one place you NEVER want to scrimp. Could cost you your ride or worse.
