    desired upgrades

    I'm now running the stock rotors and brake pads.
    I want to have better stopping power to begin with and a better feel to it.
    Now I sometimes feel like not enough is happening when I hit the brakes.

    I've come across many different kind if brakes (slotted, vented, dimpled) and want to have better stopping power than the standard brakes provide.

    However, I dont feel too much like a conversion to Corvette brakes. Tha't because of the costs and because I'm not a really well tough mechanic. I'm on een steep learning curve :-)

    Another wish is to use brake pads that have good durability and a small amount of brake dust.
