Default R53 brake upgrade?

I have an R53 with quite a bit of upgrades in my power train and suspension. Now my brakes are needing replacement for the first time since my maintenance plan ran out, I'm looking to upgrade. Maybe JCW brakes, maybe aftermarket. Bottom line, I want better brakes but don't want to pay an arm and a leg for them. I've noticed most brake kits are front wheels only. Makes sense since that is where most of the braking occurs; I just want to make sure that there is nothing goofy by going front only. (Question: do stock JCW cars have the upgraded brakes all round or front only?).

What would folks recommend for a cost effective upgrade? What would I expect to pay for a pair of JCW brakes (can't find them online anywhere)?

Note that I don't track my car so...
