Define "brakes upgrade".

You might want to inspect your metal brake lines for severe corrosion pitting. It's not just a theoretical concern. Not unusual for pitted lines to rupture under hard stop (an adrenalin-inducing experience!) - happened to both my Concordes. Semi-major project to replace all your lines. Typical sites of worst corrosion: The rear lines where they travel parallel to driver's side fender in engine compartment (parallel metal power steering lines in that tray are also known for rusting thru), all lines going into-out of brake Manifold/MCU (below PDC), and forward of driver's rear wheel forward of the 90° bend of one of the lines to head over to the passenger side. Of course the degree of corrosion is somewhat dependent on your car's geographic location over most of its life.
