They will have you remove everything from your car too, this includes spare tire and floor mats. You would certainly need some higher performance brake pads and fluid. On your car, at least carbotech xp10 but xp12 or equivalent would probably be better.

+1 to Turn 1! Great instructors there, especially Pat. They're not cheap, but the quality of instruction is worth it, IMO. And once your instructor clears you for solo driving, T1's pricing becomes on par with other track organizations.

Just starting out for track days HP+ should work fine (coupled with a good fluid). I've been using them for 6+ events, now, including 2 days on CMP's east course and 2 days on the full course. But, now I feel it's time to step up to a proper track pad and just swap them at/before the event.
