Brakes best BBK bang for buck?

i have a base 2005 G35 coupe and my brakes are shot.. im about to get my tax return and am not sure what the best deal would be.. i hate the looks and performance of my OEMs..

what would be my best increase in braking performance while not spending $6k???

i dont wanna keep my calipers so its either:

OEM BREMBO kit w/ upgraded pads, rotors and lines

or

OEM G37S kit w/ upgraded pads, rotors and lines

or

Ksport BBK(most expensive outta my bunch at $4k)

IMHO? oem Brembo on Racing Brake's 2 pc rotors for the oem brembo.

G37 setup is nice as the front rotor is 14". But that rotor also weighs approx 24-26lbs. On your 05, you would be adding a good 5-6lbs of roatational weight to each corner.

For all you pre-05 guy adding the G37 setup, it would be like adding a good 10lbs to each corner.

i was told about the weight issue for the G37S brakes and i was hoping that me using 2 pc rotors would solve that issue..

My memory says the oem Brembos were 60-0 in around 110-115 ft.

What did the G37 Akebonos do?
