If you are looking for better performance, a set of good brake pads will work wonders. In case you are not satisfied with high performance brake pads, go for the Brembos. I say this because a full big brake kit will cost an arm and a leg.

I am not sure about brembos but the AP racing set for the altima for just the front set is around 6,200 AED.

Since the Aurion isn't sold in many places outside the Middle East and Australia, it'll be a pain looking for aftermarket performance pads. What you can do is confirm if the Camry and the Aurion come with similar sized pads all round and then order them from a vendor in the US.

EDIT: Expect to spend atleast 800 AED for a complete front+rear pad set.

The aurion is sold as the camry in many parts of the world including china and fareast like Thailand, Singapore etc. However they get a weaker 2.0 liter motor also along with the 2.4 camry(M.E) motor. So the brakes might not be as strong there! But the tuning scene is quite good in Thailand which means you may get better brakes if you look hard enough!

If your brakes currently have enough stopping power in order to make the ABS kick in or to make the tires squeal and slide, you will just be hitting that instance sooner with more stopping power.

What you should be doing is looking for wider + better grip tires which will take longer than the current ones to attain slippage under extreme operaiton conditions, which will make the ABS kick in later than it currently does.
