[V8] brake upgrade options

I think you have basically two choices if you are going to stay in the realm 
of reason.  There are wilwood based systems, two of which are available at 
RPI equipped  http://www.rpiequipped.com/store/c199078.2.html

You can go with the big brake set up with your current set up.

BIRA is basically porsche based, which has the attraction that they were 
originally made for the street and may be more durable than the wilwoods 
(though I have no proof of that).  BIRA has a set up that works with the G60 
set up you have already, so no need to swap struts etc.  I would think that 
the cost of going to the TT set up would not be worth it.

Good luck.
