BuyBrakes listened to my gripes about the original stock brakes pads and rotors that came on the car and how they made noise. They asked me how I drove the car and I confessed "like a looney" on the back roads on the weekends. They recommended I upgrade to a performance brake kit which included slotted hi-carbon brake rotors and performance Hawk brake pads.

I've had them on now for about 3 months and I gotta say they do stop the car probably about 10 feet shorter from 70mph but what is fun is I can do repetitive performance stops and I don't get brake fade or noise. So, their brakes were less money than the Mini dealer wanted for stock stuff, so I feel pretty good about the brake package they (BuyBrakes) ultimately recommended. Not sure if they can help everybody, but worth a call.
