By eck, you must give your car some welly if you found the need to change the the set-up. Or do you take it on track days etc? Admittedly I haven't taken mine on the track (nor do I plan to), but I've never been faced with overheating or fade from my standard set-up, I think they're great with good feel and are pretty progressive.

Perhaps I'm not trying hard enough
Thanks pal. I'm only upgrading as the I've already got a rear m3 subframe on my car and a set of brakes that fits it. By fitting the m3 rear brakes, they're actually the same size as the fronts so I might as well go for a set of 6/8 pot fronts whilst I'm there.

The standard setup with EBC yellowstuffs IMO is more than sufficient for 95% of people on road and on track. If I wasn't overhauling so many parts, I'd stick with the OEM setup. Even with RBs turbos and meth, I never really found the setup lacking in stopping ability.
