Re: price for brakes

A good value and performance brake setup would be DBA Slotted rotors on the front which are $135ea, or slotted and cross drilled for $175ea and a set of decent brake pads all around. Lucas pads are only about $100 for a complete set (front and back) and are comparable if not better than Bendix Ultimates which are around $200 a set. I run this setup, and give it hell and it performs really well.

Re: price for brakes

yep what EDXR8 said

a decent set of discs and a decent set of pads should be a cheap decent upgrade
