SVT Brakes or Stock Brakes ?

I have 215/45/17 tires on my non-svt focus- Now Im lookin for brembo brakes (slotted), and i have the choice of the SVT brakes or Stock from the vendor. Theyre both the same price... anyone know which one I should get? does it matter? also will i need to get pads and other stuff with the brakes? I should also get for the rear too? Thanks in advance for your help.

You cannot use SVT brake rotors on a non-svt unless you upgrade your hubs to SVT hubs.

He is correct ^^^ The SVT brakes WILL NOT work on your stock non-svt hubs.
