Ive done this of course before and after the Brembo BBK was installed so that I can compare. The first thing is that brake feel is greatly improved IMO, in fact, it takes a bit of getting used to as brakes will bit a lot quicker than the stocks. This gives you more confidence and a feeling that the cars stops faster than before (although I doubt that this is actually the case) but at the very least it stops in the same distance with improved brake feel. I also find it a bit easier to downshift with heel & toe rev matching etc... Lots of fun and absolutely no difference in brake feel after performing these very aggressive stops time and time again in very close intervals. The cars temperature reading reaches about 112 Celsius (233.6 Fahrenheit) with ambient temperature at around 70 degrees F throughout these maneuvers to give you some idea of the spirited driving. Track day reviews will follow!

As for the supplier, MW Design, Mike and Lewis have always been very helpful, creative and great service price and everything. I am a repeat customer of theirs!
Always great info. Thanks man

They are 380mm all around. 355 look miniscule on these wheels!! Front rotors are around 36mm thick and rears' are around 26mm thick. The system weighs about 18kg "less" than stock.
