otherwise if you do a lot of long term braking like canyoning or tracking you may want to invest in a set of zimmerman rotors(best for the money) and either some Axxis or Hawk pads or another comparable aftermarket pad. But if you just daily drive the car you wont need those honestly.
Step one, Flush out the system with new fluid and make sure you get all the air and old dirty fluid out...
