Just order organic compound Textars already. Either coated Balos or Zimmermans rotors. That combo will help you achieve the oem feel you are looking for. But enjoy cleaning brake dust every 2-3 days.

I should outline again that this doesn't happen at every cold start. Only if prior to it (night before or few hours before) i started the car & shut it off quickly (within seconds).
