The one non-upgrade on our '16 RD vs '07 VR is the brakes - the VR front Brembos won't fit the RD and the PoleStars are US $4k .
My question is whether anyone has tried Centric slotted rotors and/or Akebono pads on their RD, and braided ss brake lines - have all these on the VR and am very happy.

Have not done brakes on my RD yet, but I plan to try the Stoptech drilled rotors and pad kit when ready, may even splurge on one of their big brake kits instead? I believe slotted rotors wear your pads too prematurely/excessively if mostly for street duty, so that's why I'm going with drilled. Stoptech also makes SS brake lines.

I've got a 2014 XC60 RD. I believe the brakes are close to or the same as what is on the S60/V60 RD. I replaced the rotors and pads right after I took delivery with Stoptech rotors and Akebono pads. They have been on for over a year and 15k miles. No problems at all.
