What're you trying to do, just change the pads/rotors as maintenance or upgrade?

Rotors and pads.

You can use bicycles brakes too. I am sure shimano makes some good ones.

Yes, but he should at least get Shimano 105 or better. Hell, you might want to go up to Dura-Ace.

That's an overkill! I just stick my foot out!

I got Akebono pads last time and like them. The "green stuff" seems very popular, I'll try those next time.

I installed a KERS on my car...get an extra 40 hps when I use the brakes, but I know I did something wrong, coz my breaks don't really stop as well as they used to.

I even used Textar, which is the maker of the OE pads...got them at bmaparts for cheap...but they used to be the best when they worked.
