    This has been discussed on the forum many times mate - I'd use the search button with "stage 3 brakes" and you'll find lots of opinions!

      If you intend to do nothing than more than blasting up and down motorways and quick blasts during your normal commute than you should be fine, but i would at the least recommend uprated pads, braided hoses and a good dot5.1 brake fluid if you cant quiet stretch the wallet for anything else, that in in itself will give you more on a safety front should you ever need to use it......

        uprated brake setup should be one of the first things you do if you drive the car hard
        yellow stuff pads will be a start but the next step is vectra VXR setup or 4 pots
        the truth is out there
        part GSI part VXR

                I'm getting a set of pagid pads, braided hoses and 5.1 fluid for the corsa before I fit an IC. I'm sure it would be fine running standard brakes, I guess its down to personal preference.

                    Im planing stage 3 in the next couple of months and have courtney discs and yellow stuff pads and they seem to stop me good enough at the moments so i am not going to rush to upgrade and further, braided hoses and som dot 5.1 as recommended above i think would be find for normal road use but not for track.

                        Thanks boys and girls
