Need help: Brake rotors and pads replacement

Where is the best place to go buy replacement for both front and back rotors and pads ?

oem/aftermarket combo ?

I have heard that the initial bite of the oem pads is amazing but can i go with cheaper rotors ?

ps : my car has 52 000 km. Do i really need to change the rotors too ?

The guys who run track days probably don't switch rotors every time because they'll burn through a set of pads in no time. However, for daily driving I always replace rotors and pads at the same time. Costs a bit, but the outcome is always no shakes, no squeals, no worries. The pads want to seat into a fresh machined surface. Can you get away with just a pad slap? Sure, but I'd rather do it all and be done.

Turner sells a complete front/rear package. Pick your pads and rotors and go.

With only 52000km, isn't your car still under the warranty/free maintenance plan? Shouldn't you be able to get them replaced by the dealer?
