Need some advice on Brakes....

Hey everyone.... Well spring is here and the car is back on the road. First thing I have planned is to change out my brakes. The car only has 55000 km and the brakes are still okay. Just have a lot of brake fade if you stop hard a few times. Looking for advice on what's a good product to put on a relatively stock convertible. I don't think I'm doing more mods so I won't need a big brake kit. I found a few kits on AM but the shipping cost to Canada is a bit crazy due to the deflating Can. Dollar. Any advice is welcome.... Thanks

I just did my brakes and spent 30 for all four corners from rockauto. No complaints yet

I installed drilled and slotted rotors on my car about a year ago. From my personal experience they still heat up just as quick, but they will cool down much quicker. Some people say they don't make a difference, but I would definitely suggest them. Other common brake mods are performance pads and stainless steel brake lines.

It's all about the smiles per gallon

Rock auto has kits that's come with cross drilled/slotted rotors and ceramic pads, I believe they cost less than 200 for the front brakes, it's a bit pricey for new brakes but much better quality.
