I asked what it was going to take...you guys answered that..
Now give me the answer to the above question and the approx. cost.
You guys are really a great resource and appreciate it.

One other quick question...
How does tire size effect ride? We are thinking about putting 18s on it but would do 17s if recommended...although, I can't imagine the difference is that great.

I went from 15s to 16s and noticed that the ride harshed up a bit because of the shorter, stiffer side walls of the new tires. Of course, the vastly improved road feel more than made up for it. I imagine you would feel a similar change going from 16 to 17 and more so going form 16 to 18.
I dont know exactly where you could buy all the parts for factory VR6/1.8T brakes other than a dealership or a junk yard. I'd imagine it would be very overpriced at the dealership, and used at a junk yard. My suggestion would be a big brake kit. Look here: TT Brake Upgrade
