I'm looking to upgrade my front brakes. What would you guys recommend? Go with a complete big brake kit or just upgrade my rotors and pads?? I don't have the HPP. So, I have the base model brakes. It's a daily driver. I don't take it to the dragstrip, and I don't do autocross. Let me know what you think guys/gals. I appreciate it.
Call american muscle. For $1500 they have a great six caliper brembo system for front. Not sure if they advertise it.

If you are budget conscious, the best brake upgrade for the money is to go with either the GT (4-piston) or GT PP (6-piston) which you can usually find used with low miles on ebay or other online sources for low $$. Many times they will come as a package with brake hoses, rotors, and sometimes the dust shields. My current build I found GT brakes with hose and rotors for $150 shipped, high temp decals for $3.50, and red caliper paint for $15. I installed and used them for 2 years, then swapped them out to my wife's 2016 V6 and found GT PP calipers and rotors for $250 shipped. The only other expense was pads and hardware. One thing I realized afterward having a car with premium options like the pre-collision is mashing the brake pedal after the red lights flash on your windshield is a BAD thing. I ended up with a seat belt mark on my chest for days after putting on the 6 piston Brembos and stomping the brakes when an idiot pulled out in front of me. LOL
