I currently run Project Mu Club Racer RC09 compound and love them. Your car would also do well with them.

As for RS4s vs RE71Rs, Tire Rack recently did a review and found that in the dry, the RS4s are damn near comparable to the 71Rs in terms of overall cornering grip. On the downside, they are not as good in the wet. However, the RS4s will outlast the RE71Rs any day of the week. I personally used a fresh set of RS4s at the beginning of the 2017 season and still have about 35% left after doing a full OTA season plus 10 other track days.

Bang for buck, RS4s are fantastic and for your car, it will do well. Bear in mind, if the day is already hot and your driving induces very high peak temperatures, the RE71Rs will die off quickly that day (and overall). RS4s will take much more heat and I haven't had them die on me ... yet.
I love the DTC-60 Pads, they have a great initial bite and a predictable and easily to modulate. You get excellent stopping power and can drive these on the street with a little care. They warm up quickly and stay consistent.
