2012 Brake Upgrade

Looking for better brake performance from my 2012. Not terribly impressed in how easily they seem to fade. What pads will offer a significant improvement over OEM, and can I get some that also reduce dust? Stock pads seem to get everything gross pretty quick...

May consider upgrading rotors if it's worth it (which I don't think it is). Still plenty of meat on the factory ones, and I don't much care for slotted/drilled/whatever rotors.

Also, I'd like a bit more "bite" to the brakes. I have to put pretty decent presure on the pedal to stop quickly. Not a huge issue, but I'd prefer if I could get more stopping power with less pedal pressure. I don't need to stop faster, just more aggressively. Is the only fix for that new calipers?

Getting new summer tires before the end of the year, and would very much like better brake performance to go with them.
