    Depends on what brakes your car has just now, how big a setup you wnt to go for and what budget your looking at spending.

    If your paying as much as it takes then get some APs (will set you back between £1500-£2k). However you could also go for a High spec setup, use the High spec bells and rotor but retain your standard caliper. You havent said which car so its not easy to suggest.
