Performance pack discs and pads recommendations?

I've got a GTI PP, when I bought the car it had drilled and vented discs front and back from ECS tuning. I got my MOT done a couple months ago and they had brake replacement down as an advisory. So it's about time to bite the bullet and get some new discs and pads.

Just wondering if people would recommend spending extra on getting drilled or vented discs and uprated pads etc. for just daily/street use.
These are the discs I have on currently: https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-...nt-cross-drilled-slotted-2-piece-brake-discs/ but they're kind of expensive and don't know how much I actually need another set like this for daily driving.

I was thinking of either getting OEM discs or maybe getting some clubsport S fronts: https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-...lubsport-s-front-brake-discs-pair-5q0615301c/

But if anyone has any recommendations for pads/discs then I'd be appreciative for the advice.

Okay man thanks, I've been having a bit of a read around the forum and people seem to agree with you. I mean they look good but I'd rather save some money if they're not gonna benefit performance wise.

For a strictly street driven car I would get OEM or aftermarket equivalent rotors and low dust ceramic pads.

Looks like you’re overseas. Maybe try source part numbers local to you, not sure on FCPs shipping to UK. Sorry, didn’t realize location

No worries man, yeah I'm from UK. I probably should have mentioned that in the post :oops:. Thanks for the recommendation though!

Okay man thanks! What low dust pads can you recommend, EBC red stuff any good?

TRW ceramic pads are the pads I use for the winter/not track season. No dust, relatively cheap, and the oem calipers are stamped TRW so the pads fit in the bracket perfect and don’t clunk like my ferodo’s. Rotors, just get cheap blanks.
