The big issue is how you drive your car.  If you track it, or just want to 
spend the cash for better stopping than spend $$ for the up grade.

Personally I had my old 5000 Avant with G-60s for 6 years and 250k and my 200 
for 4 1/2 years and 120k with G-60s with no problems.  I pull a snowmobile 
trailer and drive in the mountains often on ski trips.  I also load a lot of 
gear in the car.  The few panic stops I have made, always activated the ABS.  
However normal driving does not produce the heat and fade you get on the track.

My opinion, if your 200 is a daily driver G-60's do the job.  If you track it 
or just want to spend the cash on better brakes do it.  Its your decision.
