ALSO For those interested in the super challenge setup or the carbon super challenge it is not on this pdf I have attached. I will be doing a review of the Super Challenge kit once I install mine.

Rotora has been having quality control and customer service issues, I know VividRacing has stopped carrying them. I would be interested to see you findings.

Well hopefully things go much well for me. I have a colleague with the E46M setup and loves it. I also had a front kit on an old e36m I had for a while. No problems then either.

Rotora already has this. I found out when I bought my bbk from them. It's about $2800 for brackets lines and calipers

Malek was working with Brembo on this. IIRC, he told me that Brembo only had 4-pot calipers that were suitable for the front rotors. So yeah, not gonna happen.

Yeah, he mentioned that. I don't agree though that only 4-pot ones would work especially since Rotora makes a 6-pot for them now.

It's not that only a 4-pot will work. It's that a 4-pot is all that Brembo currently makes that's suitable for rotors that are the thickness of the OEM rotors.

Yeah, from what I recall, he was concerned about over-extending the pistons.

isnt a huge portion of the upgrade getting more vanes and better heat dissipation with the upgraded rotors. seems kind of silly to me.

Nothing beats a bigger heat sink, larger diameter and thicker rotor.

This setup may add some bling behind the wheel, but don't really address the core issues.

Bling is exactly what's needed. If one is looking for braking improvement then BbK is the only way.

Tischer sells a red caliper upgrade for anyone interested. It is the exact same caliper that comes on our cars however they are red. They are 303 for the rears x 2 and 383 for the fronts x2. Spoke to Jason at tischer and she said he will do a group buy of 5 of us for free shipping. I have not purchased yet so obviously no pics but its our existing oem caliper in red. If you are interested in a group buy with me send me a pm
