    If you're on street tires, HP+ is all you need. If you're upping tires, up your pads...

    I'm running Centric blanks, HP+ pads and ATE superblue with no problems. Been through a couple trackday sessions and hard mtn driving with great results. Ordered it thru- http://knsbrakes.com/index.php Decent prices, fast shipping and good customer service.

    Maybe for a beginner - intermediate driver. No way, as an Advanced ...or, like I said, I need to learn to brake less. Even in a lighter car, I cooked Hawk HT10 up front (with Hawk Blues on the rear).

    FWIW, in my V, I use PFC01 pads up front with Hawk HP+ rears on the track and its been great.

    I went OEM rotors and hps pads. OEM pads are much better. The HPS have less dust but I miss the performance.

    Where is the best place to get OEM rotors and pads? I need to do my brakes also. Can you get them locally or do you need to order them?

    If you can find a local dealer that gives discounts that's great, but I have always found the best prices at Lindsay Cadillac of Alexandria - Call 1-888-894-1729 and ask for Luke.

    Luke's prices, with shipping added on, is still going to be cheaper...
