Yes, the brakes are Brembos, 6 pot front, 4 pot back IIRC (gthal?). I asked Dads for a CF hood for the facelift, he is working on it but doesn't have one yet. I think it would help and I've heard in the MB forums that an individual had AMG replace his tranny and engine (or just the latter) oil coolers with larger units. The Black Series has no issues with heat and the other option is to retrofit the BS oil coolers.
