Go for some dimple and slotted rotors and some EBC brake pads (I have heard green or yellow work the best). Doing both of these will make a huge difference in your braking.

The difference between drilled and dimpled rotors are that drilled are just that, they are drilled all the way through. They are a lot more prone to cracking and warping (especially if you drive through a lot of puddles). Dimpled rotors just have little dots, but don't go all the way through (about the same depth as the slots). Since they are not drilled all the way through they tend to hold up better to warping while at the same time help to dissipate heat.
