Well, one thing many members feel is that they are not into having to break hard and feeling as if their rotors are warped at 15k miles (okay, the mileage may be an exaggeration, but the feeling is not). Brakes are as beneficial an upgrade as any other (even moreso in some cases) - but it can get pretty expensive (like lowering).Supernova said:With me, i've NEVER seen the need to upgrade the brakes. Then again i don't drive my car hard. I do get on it some of course; ya gotta do that. But the factory brakes stop the car fine for me. Brakes just seem, IMO, a waste of money unless you really into driving hard and having to stop fast.... which i'm not.
