Brake disc replacement

Hi All,
I have 1988 black 3.2 Carrera and I am exploring options for brake disc replacement and pad combinations. All my driving to date is on road and I am looking for the best road set up. I am tempted to stay with stock disc's and pads as I just dont have the experience of other products or setups and it would be great to get some feedback.
Having looked through various posts and done some reading, I plan to do the work myself as it seems relatively straight forward for a newbie mechanic like myself, though the rear discs seem more complicated with the drum handbrake setup. 
Anyway that aside, you thoughts and experience would be greatly appreciated.

    Lots of threads on Brake upgrade on the Impact Bumper forum.
    I personally went for the "Carbon 12" kit as sold by Tuthill's and Early 911, but had my Indie buy directly and then fit them..

    Standard brakes are fine for road use, Sebro discs and ATE pads wont give you any problems, and be well under half of Porsche prices.
