Stoptech BBK price increase??

Dammit how did I miss this? When did the prices go up? I was putting off my BBK upgrade until next year but with a 10% price increase I should have just bought it now.

All the more reason to step up to AP Racing, IMO. I just put in my track pads and the stopping performance is literally !

If you're not in a rush to do the upgrade, then you might keep a lookout for a group buy on them.

i have an e46 so i gained weight actually in the rear by 6lbs a corner and the front went down by 4 lbs a corner. this is due to the much larger rotors, both bigger and thicker that weigh 20 lbs each. here is the link to my build.

I'll be looking on my doorstep every day now until I see a nice big stoptech box.

Your kit looks great btw. I like the silver.

Yes I want to keep the entire car clean. Spend a lot of time cleaning dirt out of the seats after last weekends spin.

No worries. I live in PNW remember. Will clean that also. Pull my wheels every time I get home to clean all the pickup out of the barrels and can clean rotors at same time and bleed when needed. Working on its part of the fun.
