Dinan Brake vs Brembo

whats the difference between the 2? do they perform the same? Dinan says their brake system is as same as the brembo GT.

Last time I talked to the Dinan rep at Bimmerfest, he said they make it a little more BMW specific by adding a provision for the brake pad sensor. That might be the only change they make...

I was at a Dinan sponsored event recently and Steve Dinan words were - exactly the same just say Dinan on them. He wanted to offer his customers a BBK and Brembo was the best partner.

As Sticky stated, you get points too if your going for the Dinan badge.

Just look at each caliper with the emblem "Dinan" vs "Brembo", you would be crazy not to go with brembo.

Get the Brembos.
Red is easier to maintain.

I was told it's just the badge as well no difference. I'd rock the Brembo myself.

^ exactly why you shouldn't get yellow. I have red on my SS II and it looks great. Have you seen the Orange ones on BMW M Mexicos AW M3? They look sharp but they are the VRS ones with the little CF piece on them.

It's a perfect git with OEM 19's.
We debuted that kit at Bimmerfest last year with that exact wheel combo.

My vote is for the RED calipers on an Alpine White car!!

365 front rotor is a good idea to fit under many other rims, but 380 is just too nice.
