DBA slotted or slotted and cross-drilled rotors (the cross drilling is really only for looks) will help big time, along with a set of Bendix Advance or Bendix Ultimate pads.
The slotted discs should be around the $130 or so each (cross drilled are more expensive), the pads around $120 a set. A good DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid will be around $10 so you may as well flush the brakes while you're at it. It also worth doing your wheel bearings at the same time (front) so factor in around another $50 or so for them, but all up this works out at around $800 or thereabouts. And the increase in braking performance is well worth the effort.
Of course, if you get this done by someone, you will need to add in a couple of hours labour (probably around $180 - $240)
