This. With my 225 Conti Extremecontact DW tyres braking is phenomonal, in the dry the ABS just won't kick in because all 4 tyres are absolutely stuck to the asphalt. Tyres are everything.
(Apologies for my spelling of tyres, I grew up accross the pond )
You would be surprised how significant the brace actually is.

To put in perspective, my 2.5i brakes better and also feels better then the 04 Wrx.
