Start by changing the brake fluid, if that's no good change the pads, if thats no good change the discs.

I'm going to disagree with that, I use the brakes hard and repeatadly on twisty mountain passes and have never had any fade or juddering, the ABS doesn't kick in even under extreme braking.

I've changed the pads to Endless SSS and the fluid still running stock disks

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks standard brakes are adaquate! If you are struggling maybe your brakes are ****ed? How much power are you running? By the way wtf has your mate got if it cost 8 grand? Trust alcons only cost about 3!

No need for anything like that money..

DBA 4000 series grooved (Wiper slot) front discs, Ferodo 2500 pads, Motul 5.1 fluid and braided hoses, total approximate costs including labour around £700.

The above assumes the 296mm discs and 4 pot standard Nissan (Sumitomo) calipers, when the above prescription simply stops the vehicle, under all and any road conditions I've met. No squeal, no fade, no histrionics whatsoever, and oh so smooth and quiet.

Aitch
