Inquiry - so who sells the cheapest Stop Tech BBKs?

I am in a spot where my Carmax warranty runs out in exactly a year or XXXX months, so basically a year based on my driving mileage. If I keep it I need a brake job and am going to splurge for a BBK from StopTech, if I don't keep it, this post is pointless.

The way I see it is.

Spent $1000+ on maintenance good stuff or spend $2000+ on some StopTech BBK front and worry about another $2000+ rears later.

Any suggestions on where to buy?

I see so many sites where with a generic search it is like a $1000-1500 kit, but then when you select E9X M3 it becomes a $2000-2500 kit.

I got mine through Trinity for a little bit more. There are quite a few places selling them right now for just under 2500 but that number changes a fair bit the closer we get to spring.

You're putting so much effort for minimal loss. I would do what you're doing if the car was already stripped like joes (trinity).

Just take out big things and lose more lol
Right, but I don't have the money for the big stuff right now so I'm just looking around. And I'm not ready to lose the speakers.
I wouldn't do speakers. It's ten pounds for under the seat but the audio quality just goes to shit lol.

I'm not sure where you're already at with the weight loss. Did you remove rear seats? I know your dogs ride with you so not sure if you're able to do that.

I think I'm back at a healthy 3500 minimum now lol. I should weigh again out of curiosity.

I can't bring myself to pull the speakers out. My DD Eurovan had the WORST stereo ever. I use a damn cassette adapter in it haha

That’s going to hurt the imaging and top end on “the wheels on the bus”.

Maybe I'll swap the M3 stereo into the van so I don't feel like I'm losing it.

Yea rear seats are gone. Dogs sit on the foam back there.
Once I get a trailer it's pretty much getting stripped.

Might be worth building a rear seat delete panel.
Or buying one, but what's the fun in that.

It's not hurting anything just being open. Just doesn't look pretty.
