  My 90 V8Q had G60's before I did the 993tt brake
 & from what I experienced they were fine! Yah the
UFO's are better but the G60's are fine as well.
 & doing a Big brake upgrade isn't expensive at all.
 The Rs2 caliper brackets are cheap, & you can still
get a brand new set of 993tt "BigRed" calipers from
Creasent Porsche in New Orleans for $800, But when I
got mine they were only $600 new. 
 or try LA Porsche dismantlers they can be had used
for like $400 or so. The S8 323X30 Zimmerman slotted &
cad coated rotors I got brand new at the Audiworld
marketplace for $200 shipped. I got the brake lines
from Richard Hoffman (Billzcat) sp? for around $80.
The brake lines are Earls with the correct fittings.
If anyones interested I can shoot out the part #'s of
the lines & fittings. The pads I got on E-bay Hawk, &
the mounting bolt for the calipers were cheap as well
from the dealer.
 & I used good racing brake fluid from ECS.
 I think all in all it cost me a tad over $1k.
 If you drive "normal" the G60's are fine but for me
it was the look. 
 I also had to use 17" rims which I also got on the
Audiworld market place for $600'ish. That was 5 "01"
S4 Avus rims. But I'm getting sick of the look of them
so I'm going to go with the OZ Supperlegs I love those
 But for anyone contemplating Big brakes DO IT! $ well
