    get the standard ones, drilled or grooved will give very minimal benefits. if you have the s3 then possibly drilled as they may be used harder and would need better cooling. or you could get some 312mm discs and fit caliper carriers!

    to get a good set such as brembo, you will be looking at about 250 or you could pay for some calipers carriers which enables you run 312mm discs, or even pay a bit more for the 3.2 345mm discs and caliper and get an even better look as they are massive
