You'll like the XP8's as long as you don't mind the dusting.  Just make sure you follow the bedding in process.

If you are using your existing rotors, you will need to clean them off with brake cleaner and a scotch brite pad to remove all the old brake pad material prior to bedding the Carbotechs in.  Just pull the rotors off and do it on the bench.

No I ordered their brake kit so its rotors pads fluids and SS lines.. But if I knew brake cleaner + scotch pad will work as well I would've just order the pads only  sad1

I just got 215/40 tires on my otherwise stock MSM.  It rides so much better, fills the wheel wells better too.  I went with the Kumho LE sport, it was too cheap to pass up.  I am keeping mine for a while, I hope.  Will get some coilovers  in the fall, and a set of 15x8 wheels with 225/45 tires when these start getting thin.  Planning on about a dozen autocrosses this summer
