Few questions:

1.) Do you have any photos of your car? I'd like to see your seats

2.) How are the ds2500 pads? I'm looking to change mine but wasn't sure where to start.

DS2500 is definitely a good balance between fast road and a light track pad. They are relatively quiet compared to the optional M performance sport pads, DS3000, Pagid RS19s/29s and PFCs. The DS2500 have a similar feel to the stock pads i.e. slightly soft initial bite that increases with temperature. The M performance sport pads and RS19/29s bite hard from the get go and work well from cold but are too noisy for general road use, unless you live alone in the countryside or install anti-squeal shims. SS brakelines and different brake fluid are only necessary if you track it pretty hard and regularly, otherwise their benefits isn't so apparent over oem on the road. Ring taxis only upgrade their pads to the M performance ones and carry 3 passengers, so uprated pads for fast road use is more than sufficient.
