Looking for advice to upgrade the front brakes for primarily for street use and occasional mountain roads. I am trying to determine if the upgrading to a 4 or 6 piston caliper is worth the upgrade based on the below criteria:
1) Noise: I am aware that the Wilwood brakes are "racing brakes" and probably will be a bit nosier than stock (non-Brembo). The stock calipers are quiet and I don't expect much in terms of "rattle"; I don't know how the Brembo fair in that regard.
2) Maintenance and Appearance: The stock caliper are fairly easy to maintain, but I do not like the "cheap" appearance of the stock calipers and painting the front ones does not change that. Most likely will paint the rear as the issue with the emergency brake is a concern for me.
3) Performance: I welcome better braking performance especially for the few times I plan on driving in the mountains.
So what should I expect from the upgrade (what is the compromise, if any?
As always, any advice is greatly appreciated.
