Well the brakes are great, I only have little over 8,000 miles. But was just wondering what's out there for when they are at their end and time to replace with either new OEM or upgrade.

The other day on the highway, I was going a bit fast, about 120mph and when I braked, it seemed that they gripped good at first but then I felt them fade as the temperature built up. So I'm wondering if that was normal or if more agressive driving is going to cause them to fade. Which is normal I'm sure but it's not like I'm on a track where I would be pushing the brakes at their limit continuasly. Anyway, just want to know what upgrades I can get besides a full Brembo brake upgrade, which would be awesome but I'm not gonna blow $4,000+ on brakes, at least not for a few years.
