    Gsi Turbo Brake Upgrade?

    My 265bhp gsi is running standard brakes and its now time to upgrading them and i'd like to know what other people have done with theirs. I was thinking of getting courtney grooved discs and yellow stuff pads, will i notice an improvement or should i just swap them for the vxr setup?the ap 4pots are the ultimate but i just cant afford them!
