As for brakes, I'd recommend ensuring that the existing set up is in all in good order, eg possibly, new, high friction, pads, skimmed discs, rebuilt callipers and pots and a change of fluid before embarking on expensive "upgrades". In one, slightly alarming, experience I learnt that 410 with well maintained brakes is quite easily capable of out braking a modern BMW on an Italian Motorway. Fortunately he had ABS and was able to swerve and arrive alongside and slightly in front of us. It took him some time to recover.......

A further point: the 410s brakes had last been serviced by my local "all-makes" garage.

I think it unlikely that a Brigand's brakes would be any less effective, given adequate maintenance.
