Alex (good friend and roomate) that owns the business is the cheapest BBK guy on the net right now. He is currently doing 350z's at this point but has thought about expanding to other cars. Front kit with everything you need for a 350z is around the 1300 if I remember correctly. I'm trying to convince him he needs to do a project montego blue 335i

heres the setup for 350z (my old Z)

I have been watching Wilwood's site for these since I picked up my car 2 years ago! I finallay gave up a few months ago, thinking they would never come out.

Their site has said "coming soon" since October 2006. I'll have to get back on to check them out. they look amazing!

this is special paint to match the paint of the buyers car. Wilwood only distributes red and black if I remember correctly. But I really love this blue.

Thanks Justin for taking the pictures, they turned out great! They are powder coated anodized blue with custom Wilwood stickers. Pictures honestly don't do them justice though.

Wilwood's market is in the muscle cars and circle track. They are relatively new when it comes to imports which they started with the WRX kits. I suspect it'll be a while for them to come out with a BMW kit. If you have any other questions feel free to ask, I'm an authorized dealer through Stoptech and Brembo as well.

Paint wouldn't last very long on calipers so I go with powder coating (brake parts cleaner and paint don't mix well). I liked these especially cause they had sort of a color changing effect depending on the angle. I look to do a "jollipop copper" color here soon. I'll post a few more from my crappy non-dslr.







Daytona Blue


Anodized Red


Stoptech Red


Candy Blue


Glad you guys like!
