That's a good point....check out the friction area of the actual pads. If its the same I guess that may mean that a larger diameter disc may run slightly cooler?
What is your motive Coup ? better braking performance or style? (show off your discs through the wheels).
If its performance would motorsports grade pads be worth fitting? But would they wear the disc faster too ?
Fitting calipers with more pistons gives better braking too.

Don't take without giving in return
