I have monoblock Alcon calipers on my A4. While I don't really mind removing them for pad swaps, I consider it to be an advantage if a design has a removable bridge (though it's really the idea I'm reacting to, since I've never seen or done a pad swap on such a caliper). My feeling is that it's probably a bit over-hyped, but probably does save a couple minutes and I've actually lost track time while swapping pads. That said, I wouldn't buy an inferior product just for that feature.

Basically, if the Brembo GT caliper had a removable bridge and the AP caliper didn't, it might be enough to have me leaning in that direction. But I wouldn't consider Stop Tech Trophy, no matter what. [Call me a ST hater, if you like, but I've decided they're not for me. Let's not start a flame about this.]
