Upgrade front discs on 2.0 53' jts spider?

I will need new front discs on my spider in about 6K. Is it worthwhile upgrading them to performance discs and is the braking that much better? If so what type and how much?
A friend said performance discs can be noisey. Any comments?

Re: Upgrade front discs on 2.0 53' jts spider?

Some of the uprated discs can cause problems. I once tried 20 groove red dot discs but they simply destroyed the pads, were noisy, and eventually warped anyway. The best approach is to upgrade the pads, most on here go for Ferodo DS2500. You could combine with Tarox Sport Japan discs or even Red Dot 6 groove discs, but unless you're into track days I don't think it's really worth it.
