M3 Brake Upgrade - Ideas?

With the Ring trip imminent - im thinking of trying to improve the brakes as cheaply as possible - but need some help/advice. Im not looking at BBK - but im thinking upgraded pads - maybe discs (but theyre going to be expensive) - possibly brake fluid??? Thoughts??

What brake hoses do you run on the M3?

Perhaps some Goodridge braided hoses would be a good upgrade along with a fill of Castrol Response Super DOT 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid.
