Why do you want, or believe you need, a brake upgrade? In other words, what are your goals?

Most popular combo has always been Stoptech rotors + Hawk 5.0 Pads ... No point in spending more unless you plan on racing the car on the track often

I used Stoptech rotors and pads. Great feel and stopping power.

Depends if you are going to race it or not.

Race pads are just getting effective at roughly the same point where the OEM pads are becoming useless.
