    I had Brembo rotors and Hawk green pads on my 1st gen and loved them, they were a HUGE improvement over stock. I don't feel that that the brakes on my 2nd gen need to be upgraded, however. You can't go wrong either way, honestly.

    I just replaced front pads with OEM at 75K miles. Rotors were fine. I don't abuse the brakes, but I don't baby them either.

    They seem to have a lot of good reviews.

    I also heard good things about Stoptech rotors. I have the OEM and have no complaints.
