It depends really.

What's your usage? Just road use? Lots of trackdays?

Anything in particular don't you like about the standard brakes and want to improve on?

I upgraded the pads first, went for Performance Frictions, this made a huge difference although they did eat through the standard discs pretty quickly.

I now have the big brake Alcon floating discs from SL. Haven’t used them properly yet but I had heard good things about them. Hopefully they last a bit longer than the standard drilled discs.

Came back from a trip in the Alps driving the car in anger. My setup is original 2 piece rotors (from a v6 cup which was an extra on non cup models) paired with PF8 all around and SRF. Epic feel and stopping power albeit the rotors now need replacing. The wear is considerably higher but so is the braking.
