Default Non ceramic brakes LP640

I have only tested an LP640 with ceramic brakes. They where awsome.

How is the standard Steel brake on the LP640? (probably less expensive to change but is there big difference in brakefeel?

The steel brakes are much less grabby at initial application. Aside from that, they still stop extremely well, easier to modulate too. Since I doubt you will be tracking the car frequently, you would be plenty happy with the steel rotors. IMO.

CCB rotors are lighter so the ride feels smoother

I feel that the Murci 4 piston Brembo's are underpowered for the car. The 8 pistons on the newer cars seem like they would be fine for the car if you didn't go CCB.

For the cost, it's probably better to find a car that already has them.

yes, the upgraded 'standard brakes' happened in 04 I believe, so anything after 04 have the better 'steal brakes' Then in 05 I believe, CCBs were an option and of course are nothing short of fabulous. I have them on my 06 and I love them, wouldnt buy another murci without them.

Yes, they can be retrofitted, I believe a vendor on here offers the 'kit' to do it (all lambo oem parts), but its like 23k or something, definitely not worth it.

If you like CCB, get a car with them, dont bother with the 'upgrade' path, the headache and cost likely not worth it.

Yes I agree, I have an 03 with the steal brakes, and they are just okay.

Is anyone having a problem with brake pulsation. I have an 06 murci now with 4th rotor that is pulsating. Hub, wheel, calipers were checked by dealer. I am thinking about upgrading to CCBs, but the 20k and change is holding me back. Also, I don't know if I want to get a murci with CCBs on them because the upgraded car is going to cost about a 100k. I am thinking that 20k upgrade might be a better option. Or is there a problem with the system that needs to be addressed.
