    Default Brake advice please

    Hi guys - pretty new to all this forum lark so be patient

    I have a 2015 car with a stage 3 courtney tune. I would like to upgrade the brakes to get better stopping power and want something to look a bit nicer behind the wheels too.

    I was thinking of either EBC dimpled & grooved discs and yellow stuff pads all round but want to change the front caliper to a brembo or similar? But is this possible and how noisy, if any are the dimpled & grooved discs?

    OR buy 2 new brembo 330mm calipers and get discs to suit but EBC don't make a 330mm front disc. What is a good alternative, Mtech, courtneys own that they sell?

    I like the fact that the EBC has the protective anti rust coating but don't know how well this lasts.

    Any advice/help would be useful

    Cheers lads

    How big is your budget, check out PB brakes or go for Ksports, I have 8 pot Ksports with 356mm discs they make no noise and brake really well using EBC yellowstuff pads

    D2 also do big brake kits for the vxr range but be prepared to spend around the £1000 mark for new.
