Stopping power will indeed be virtually the same and heat dissipation a bit better with bigger discs. But even the "small" 355 or 365 BBKs will outperfrom any stock setup by a large margin.
Many people who got the ST 380mm front kit got the APEX wheels. Their new wheel will even accept the Brembo 380mm BBK up front now.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
