I am getting ready to upgrade the brakes ,front and rear.
I have chosen the MINTEX Red Box brake pads. They seem the best from
what I have read. My second choice would be PBR. Any opinions on these
and other recommendations would be most welcome.
For the rotors or discs my 1st choice now would be Zimmerman
slotted,drilled and heat treated.
My second choice would be Brembo.
And my third choice would be ATE. I am worried about the ATE as some
were made in Italy and warped. The newer German ones I hear are fine.
Any help on or suggestions on rotors wold also be much appreciated.
And finally stainless steel brake lines.
Where is the best place to get these? Are there any that are DOT
approved for the 20V?
I cannot afford the Porsche calipers at this stage but want to get them
a couple of years down the road.
Also, the most reputable and the best prices of where to buy.
This is my 1st real upgrade before I get it chipped.
My 2nd upgrade will be suspension.
And my 3rd will be the exhaust.
I am trying to build a foundation of upgrades before chipping.
