Brembo is still a good BBK,but just not for those looking to swap pads often.
This man is making sense

Really tired of sales guys telling me this is not a problem for track rats. Those caliper brackets on brembos are as much as rotors. Studs are a smart fix, but still annoying to have to remove the caliper to change pads.
