Hello all. I am looking to replace the brakes on my 2010 JCW Hardtop and wanted to see what everyone opinion was. For the most part I am looking for street with maybe a once in a while track. Was thinking of doing ECS Cross Drilled and slotted Rotors. What I am not sure of is the pads. Was looking at maybe Hawk HPS or EBC Redstuff Ceramic. What does everyone else run or think? Thanks.

I would use Zimmerman solid rotors with EBC Redstuff ceramic pads. Nice combination with great stopping power, no squeal, and low dust.

I am probably doing ecb read stuff and drilled and slotted rotors. I also will be replacing then on the front and back. Looking at getting it from Ec tunning

I bought a set of Stoptech drilled and slotted rotors and Stoptech pads for my '07 MCS. I got a great price for the whole setup from www.autoanything.com
Never had a complaint in the year that I had them until I traded cars. Never tracked, but they held up well on multiple runs on and around the Dragon in '14.

I talked to anything and look at stoptech but they do not make a rotor for the car nor do they have any Evolution brake pads to fit. With that said it will probably be EBC redstuff pads and looking at EBC sport rotors which are slotted and dimpled not drilled.

Sorry about that. I forgot yours was a JCW and had the larger rotors. My '07 was an S.
