I wonder what kind of offering that stoptech will come up with. Most likely it will be quite a bit more affordable

Is this system made for the M3?

What happens with the ABS and all the electronic stuff? And with the wear sensor that the car has?

Thank you in advance for the answer.

Yes, in a few months the rate of aftermarket parts should start to pick up.

1- slots>drill for track purposes and prevention of cracking under heavy use, also I do believe there is less brake dust
2- drill>slot for cooling, generally
3- brembo has NOT come out with a BBK for the M3, so this is probably another Brembo BBK that was adapted to work with the M3
4- 60-0 times will probably be the same if not LONGER than the stockers, as the purpose of a BBK is to have continuous fade-free braking, something not common with OE M3 brakes

It's a custom order job so I'm sure you could get it for a prius if you wanted.

Nonono hold on Mexico. Wait till they make a specific application for the E92 M3 (won't be that long). I had a Brembo-employed dude talk to me (not a rep) about why you should get a set MADE for the car, as compared to an equivalent one that you adjust to suit. I can link you the thread (other forum) if you want. This has nothing to do with price, as the similar ones are the same price.

Now, GTR and GT are two different brake systems. The GTR will cost 14K for all 4 wheels, whereas the GT will cost ~ 8K. The difference, as I mentioned above, is mainly the caliper, in that for the GTR, it is made of something else (don't know what) and is quite a bit lighter and stronger.

I've never seen Brembo have rotors that look like those though. They look awesome. Where's the wheels?

Fixed.

$8-14k Brembos, $2.5k Gruppe Intake..
Now we just need him to get the $$$$ Kreis-seig F1 Exhaust
He's also our newest PW.


OT: I am not out of the market for that intake...It attracts like Heroin

All GTR sets are custom from what my friend told me. There are no specific application kits. If you go club racing you can't go wrong with it. It'll be way better than the GT kit.
