Let's be honest here; what exactly are any of you who are wanting an "upgrade" really looking for? If what you *really* want is improved performance, then the very first thing you can and SHOULD do is replace the brake fluid with ATE Super Blue racing fluid. These new car come with some pretty competent braking systems and if you are experienceing any brake pedal fade, it's most likely due to the factory fluid boiling over. Next, if you want improved break pedal *feel*, replace the brake lines with steel bradded lines. You'd be surprised how much of a difference this would make. I would do both before replacing any pads, rotors, or calipers. In fact if you did replace the pads, rotors, and calipers, but not the fluid and lines, you'd be wasting your time. I've built and raced Porsches in the past, I've also sold Porsche performance products too; so I speak from first hand experience here.

Now if the *truth* is, you want to look cool, [be honest] then you can save a LOT of money and time by going on ebay and buy a set of "Brembo" faux brake caliper covers. They are SO real looking that unless you removed the wheels, you'd never know if they were fake. As for the rotors, there are some machine shops around that will slot and possibly cross-drill a factory set for you. But be warned, it wont be cheap and personally, I wouldn't trust any cross drilling of *factory* rotors on the track as they're likely to crack and may even fail catastrophically under heavy conditions.. is a great source for information on brake upgrades
