Brembo 365/345 same weight as stock?

http://www.eurotuner.com/techarticle...r/viewall.html

This article says there are no weight savings, while many others have said that there are roughly 24lbs in savings. What gives? Anyone have an answer to this?

Thanks

i thought what they said was generally true. the rotors are bigger usually in diameter and thickness so often heavier. the calipers are also usually of larger size but of lighter weight material. Pads end up being heavier as well because they are larger covering a larger swept area. you get more thermal capacity and larger stopping power with a slight weight loss. there is a thread comparing weight of each kit somewhere here.
