Before I journey further down the road of uprated BHP, I need to get the brakes sorted out. The standard brakes are barely up to job now and with an APR chip looming after xmas, they will be found rather wanting.
I'm not looking for anything extreme - the car will never see a track day, just daily commuting and trips to the shops. I also want it to remain easy to live with and pose no issues regarding servicing and parts.
Now, I have heard that 2-piece discs are rather noisey and can get sticky when they corrode, so I am looking at single piece. Tbh my use probably doesnt warrant 2-piece anyway.
I have come up with the following options:
i) ECS Stage 2 kit
ii)Brembo GT kit
Both use single piece discs. The Brembo kit is more expensive, but Im guessing its been designed for this application and wont need the pads wear indicators to be bodged to fit the car.
My question is, which of the two will be easier to fit, give the best pedal feel and be the easiest to live with?
