Default Not happy with brakes..upgrades?

Hi guys, I have a 2001 Santro and i'm not satisfied with its braking.. tried new brake pads too.. still not happy.. Is it possible to upgrade the system? I was reading another thread and came across someone's car with 'Wilwood Brakes'.. Is it possible to get such drilled discs for 13 inch rims? any other suggestions will really be appreciated.. thanks.

Hope this link helps.

I suggest you get the brake bleeding done, fill in fresh brake fluids and then consider any upgrades as they can be very expensive.
