For Christmas this year, Santa gave me a set of Brembo GT 380mm . All I can say is lowered unsprung weight = FASTER ACCELERATION! This is one of the best mods for our car. I snapped a couple of pictures with Jason (atomic80) to share with everyone. The car is on winter mode and I can't wait to slap on the BBS FI. Thanks to Alekshop for hooking up the Brembo!

I found this information from another thread.

Brembo 380 x 34 front rotor -------------------------------- 24.8 lbs.
OEM front rotor-------------------------------------------- 26.6 lbs.

Brembo 380 x 28 rear rotor --------------------------------- 17.0 lbs.
OEM rear rotor -------------------------------------------- 22.8 lbs.

Brembo 6 pot front caliper -------------------------------- 13.0 lbs.
OEM front caliper ------------------------------------------ 15.2 lbs.

Brembo 4 pot rear caliper ---------------------------------- 9.6 lbs.
OEM rear caliper ------------------------------------------ 12.1 lbs.

Yup, I love it. The wheels will shred another 4-6lbs per corner.

So what are the weights of the components compared to stock?

Yup, that's what I meant. I'm curious what your review is for having both setup.
