The Brembo BBK will set you back about $7K. It is 380mm all around with 6 piston front and 4 piston rear. There was a 405mm option for the fronts but Brembo said it would be a bit too heavy w/o noticeable performance gains. I have these brakes on other performance cars and they are great for track and amazing for street use. There is also some weight savings compared to stock brakes but don't know how much this is.

Stoptech also has a similar kit (380mm front and 355mm rears) for about $5 grand, you will be able to upgrade these to carbon ceramic come June or July for a little under $10K (yes, that is additional).

Or, you can go Brembo Race GT that are a little under $20K with calipers that save some serious weight as they are forge titanium etc.... the rotors in this application or NOT carbon ceramic and appear to be the same as the BBK.

Cheers,
