Thinking about upgrading what part of your braking system: rotors, pads, calipers, fluid, or everything?

A mid-priced fix would be to upgrade to Viggen calipers and rotors in the front, with ceramic pads, and 9-5 Aero calipers and rotors in the back.

What about turbo x brakes when they come out? Fronts are 345mm... seems to me all you would need are custom carriers and you would be set. (if you have large enough wheels that is)
