as an AO member you get 40% of disks/pads from red dot ... I got all 4 disks and a full set of pads for £209 delivered ... although I wouldn't personally recommend the pads as they seem to fade quite alot (although they seem a bit better now after doing about 5k)
How old is your? The later ones which have VDC have a very poor brake pedal responce and feel when pressed hard. I believe it is due to a different ABS system which is linked to the VDC. That in itself would be a good reason to fit braided hoses, but the earlier cars don't need braided hoses unless used frequelty for trackdays.
Performance pads often need to be warmer to work, so consider this when choosing pads. Personally, as a particularly spirited driver, I find the standard setup ok for road use. I use Ferrodo Premier pads which resist fade upto 700 degrees which is well into the territory some alledged performance pads are supposed to work. I also got change frm £30 for front pads. They are temperature and speed stable.
Vehicle Dynamic Control. The anti skid electronics nanny. You would have a button down near the handbrake and an insturment panel warning lamp. Generally if the car has body coloured bumper inserts and door mirrors, it has VDC.
