m perf 4/2 or brembo 6/4

im choosing between m performance brake 4 pot front 2 rear or brembo 6/4 what do u guys think. the thing is the brembo im gettin is a cayenne brake n have to build new adapter to fit it in f30 but let say everything is fine so what u guys recommend? of cos if talking about coolness 6/4 looks way better than 4/2 but 4/2 itself looks cool enough already and the thing is im getting 20" incurve wheel so 6/4 shall look better but anyways want to hear u guys opinion. Or shall i get the brembo GT brake which brings cost up, some more expensive than cayenne brembo.

Tracking or posing?

Tracking the performance would be about same.

If you're just doing it for looks, for for the larger Brembo 6/4 whatever setup.

You are partially correct Shivaswrath. If he went with the Brembo GT Kit with the 355mm Rotors and the 6 pot calipers, you wouldn't notice much of a difference between the M-Perf Kit and the Brembo Setup.

Conversely, if he goes with the 380mm 6 pot front kit with the 345mm 4 pot rear, you'll notice significant brake performance differences on the track mainly due to the larger setups being more suited to handling brake fade. Maybe not as noticeable on small autocross tracks, but more so on longer more involved track days.

Pads too. I ran track pads up front at Road Atlanta and no fade. OE pads at Roebling and Sebring was another story. Pads couldn't handle the heat.
