can you be more specific?

for run of them mill replacements, get some rotors from ECSTuning. If you want something fancy and looks nice, go to Adams Rotors.

For pads, the standard upgrade is either EBC Red Stuff or Hawk HPS. There are models above and below these ones for each brand, so adjust based on your usage.

Thanks.
I've been looking at the EBC stuff. Seems to have found good feedback from EBC.
Dumb question, but could I do the sport for the front rotor and a standard rotor for the back from EBC?

Not looking to break the bank just stop the car reliably.

Yes. I ran drilled in the front for 3 years, with the stock rears. Worked fine.

Thanks for the reply.
Are the EBC rotors a good choice?

http://kspecracing.com/ebc_brakes/ebc_brake_kit_stage_2_sport/g-71576.aspx
kspec has EBC Stage 2 Sport rotors for $205.60.
Are they reliable for that price range that you know of?

For the rear I was considering EBC Brake Kit - Stage 1 Street for $95.82.

Any feedback on these and or the website?

Thanks JC
EBS is a solid brand. Never heard of that site. Make sure you keep the same pads all the way around and you'll be fine.

kspecracing.com has EBC brake set but the shipping is around $60-70.

Any distributor with a better deal?

Considering stage 1 for front and stage 2 for rear.

Thanks

I feel like that site is going to steal your money. Haha. EBC is a solid brand. Akebonno makes a Euro pad that I loved when I had it on my GTI and they're usually a little cheaper. I have them on my Lexus now too and they're fantastic. This is a bit self serving since I have rear MkV Akebonno pads I could sell you for dirt cheap if you want. But when I read reviews they were ranking right up there with EBC so <<shrug>>
