How good or bad are drilled grooved brake discs. Best brands for brake pads. Fancing change to something different.
grooved or drilled discs will make no difference on your kuga. better to spend your money on a proven manufacturer like BREMBO or FERODO, better still .. save your money until your brakes actually need replacing!
The drilled / grooved option is mainly cosmetic at this level of vehicle. The choice is yours.

Pads are a different matter... uprated pads DO make a noticeable difference... Take EBC Red Stuff as an example.. they won't fade as quickly as standard brake pads which means if youre heavy braking with a fully occupied car, these will last longer.. they are nosier when cold though so if you drive a lot in town where brakes don't heat up as quickly, that's the trade off.

You could go further and go for YELLOW stuff pads (im not sure they make them for your car spec however) this is more on top of the above... higher power / faster cars use these, they are MUCH noisier than standards.

Ive used yellow stuff pads / drilled discs / Tarox G88 discs (mega money) / Pagid 9standard) items...
read from THIS PAGE onwards to see when they were fitted.

Yes, brake pads are what will make the most difference.

It would be best to get your current discs machined before fitting new pads - or simply replace them with a new reputable brand disc. (It may be a better financial option if you're doing it yourself.)

Read up on how to bed new brake pads in too.
