Breaks and rotars Q7 TDI

Every time my break pads need replaced I have to replace my rotors
I think I understand that it is because of design for performance. Stopping distance / safety etc. But is there any alternative other than what the Audi dealership offers that might give me performance /safety and longevity?
Thanks Craig

Get the factory numbers for the parts and search online and at Audizine and other forums. Genuine is your best bet and you can source the parts for a lot less online. I used to be into VAG and did it that way.

I understand fat fingering on mobile devices, but your title made me giggle.
