Recommendations for brakes

So I am looking to buy new rotors and brakes for my zx4 I have been tossed up on ebc stop tech and hawk I have heard good and bad reviews on all of them any advise I was looking at the drilled and slotted but have heard they eat through the brake pads a lot faster than just slotted.

You are in Germany, GET BREMBO MAX ROTORS!!!!! Any Ferodo pads will do you. If you really take car and bed them both in together CORRECTLY, Ferodo DS 2500 and a set of Brembo Max rotors will be all you need. If you get braided lines as well installed, tell your passengers to wear a seatbelt as you will be able to launch them out of their seat.

I ran this setup for years in Germany, on the autobahn, Nuerburgring, Hockenheimring and at Bitburg. Yes they are dirty but the braking you get from them from stock rotors and calipers is amazing. Once I ship the race Focus from Frankfurt a.m. I will have to import the rotors from Germany. I'll probably order a few sets as spares. Again you HAVE TO BED THEM IN PER THE DIRECTIONS and they serve you well.

You can get them at the local parts store or auto pride for the rotors not sure if you can get the Ferodo pads or not. No you should not spend more that 300euros for all of it. Bremsscheibe-Rotors and bremsklotzsatz-pads
