Yours may be worth more, but the OP's car isn't.


EP and FP miatas stop perfectly fine with stock rotors and calipers.

Unless these are considerably lighter you might as well tie a gold chain around the spokes of your wheels to show off your bling.

I don't think you understand. This is not a $2000 car.

I need better pads... my axxis pads fade like hell on the street. they'd probably get me killed on a track.

I'm due for pads and rotors, I always upgrade when replacing the stock parts...I just haven't decided what to go with yet. This thread has been helpful.

then something was wrong with your stock brakes because they're good enough for race cars.
