[200q20v] + V8 Quattro UFO Brake to G60 Mod What Struts Work?

The simplistic first question is:  Why would you desire to give up your UFOs
and 20% of your braking torque for G60s?  (You didn't say that you were also
planning on switching to the A8 larger dia rotors and larger wheels.)  If
you must give up your UFOs, it should be for superior brakes, not to the
wimpy G60s relative to UFOs.
