    I upgraded the brakes on my Ibiza FR from OEM to EBC Cross-Drilled and Grooved with green stuff pads, didnt upgrade the size or calipers tho and the brakes were alot better then OEM.

    I suppose its up to you really on how much you want to spend, and if your car is heavily modified and you need the braking power there.

    i would go for just green stuff pads on the rear with OEM disc's, drilled and grooved disc's with green stuff pads on the front and them stainless steel flexi hoses all round
    Will give you a much better feel to the brakes over standard

    Agreed [MENTION=241]whereufromnosecity[/MENTION] depending on the money you wanna spend you can go for Zimmerman drilled or grooved (cheap option) mintex pads. Or the other end of the scale is tarox discs and pads but these are pricey! Theres loads of decent disc makers out there, my personal favourite discs are brembo, ive never warped a brembo disc.. Just my opinion mate!
