After coming off of a few hard runs, both high speed and twisties, I have come to the conclusion my R could benefit from bigger brakes. Although I am currently running IPD slotted rotors, Metal Master pads and steel lines, I still don't have that "ultimate" confidence in the brakes; it stops well but it could be a tad firmer. Yes, the brakes have been bleed recently; I am just looking for that hard firm, German feel. Any thoughts?<P>

The stock brakes on our R constantly warp, and we've ordered a set of PBR pads and the slotted brakes.<P>The problem with many of the big brake kits out there is that you have to run 17s indefinitely. Living in the north east, that's not an option.<P>The other alternative we thought about, is to try to retrofit a set of S80 brakes to the 850. I haven't done the research yet, but I assume the S80 has a bigger, beefier setup than the 850...especially the T6.
