Ferodo ds2500 pads, they won't be crap then!
Never heard a bad word for em and they will transform your brakes

If you dont have ABS then gliding in to something with the wheels locked is not pretty either

I have EBC disks and pads with stock calipers and they arent too bad. The GTR Brembos are a popular conversion too ( ive got some of these too, really should fit em to something)

GTR Brembo's with Ferrodo DS2500's for me, great stopping power.

dont know if it has abs but it didnt lock up, apart from me pulling the handbrake up to try and stop it better, had pagid pads om my bmw with drilled disks and they were good, how much will gtr brakes cost me?

It depends if you can find someone who has a set spare, they are very much in demand as they can be fitted to other marques too. Are you looking for fronts only or front and rear. Also disks are not cheap either OEM or afternmarket
