Oh okay! Did you guys think about selling the kit with used calipers and just rebuilding them before sale? Or maybe selling just the brackets and having the customer source their own calipers?

Seems like Freaky Parts UK experienced a similar fate - out of calipers. No link to their Brembo kit anymore and haven't posted in the forum since last summer...

Good! Yeah, I misjudged their absence from the thread and a broken link I had. Share pics when you install!

Hello, my name is Andre and I write from Brazil
I used the front kit around 1000km, and even bleeding the system 4 or 05 times, the brake pedal is still low. did anyone have the same problem? is it necessary to change the master cylinder?

Does it firm up when pumped?

You need to bleed with INPA or ISTA-D/Rehingold to activate the ABS/DSC solenoids that likely have air trapped in them.

when I'm pumping, the vacuum pump is activated frequently, and the pedal starts to get firmer, yes

my Suggestion then is, properly bleed with a diagnostic computer that can activate the abs pump bleed procedure, OR:

To manually bleed it, You'll have to do every line and connection point from the master cylinder out to the calipers.. it'll require two people but it can be done.

You start at the first brake line nut at the master cylinder, rear most first, then front, then bleed the lines going INTO the ABS unit, then each line going OUT of the ABS Unit, THEN do the calipers, bleeding the inner Bleeder first, then the outter bleeder, and back to inner.

That should get it all out. worst case if you want to be sure, once you do a full bleed, find some dirt, go hit the brakes to activate the ABS 2-3 times, back to the shop and bleed at the wheels again to remove the last bit of dislodged air from the lines.


Good Luck!

Hello,

This past weekend I removed the brembo calipers and went back to using the original bmw calipers. The brake pedal became firm and consistent again, the braking power returned and the vacuum pump stopped being activated constantly.
The problem is not the bleeding of the brakes!!!

checking the brembo brake calipers, possible causes for malfunction:

*bad installation of brake calipers
*maybe the brake pads are not suitable for my use (track day). The metal plates detached from the back of the pads, causing interference and malfunction of the pistons of the brake calipers. The pistons are unable to return due to interference with these metal plates
*Brake caliper problem. The pistons don't fully return.

What is your opinion?

What pads are you using? I never experienced this in the entire time I used this system or installed it for others. I was using hawk for my front and rear and tracked my car often. No issues to report. When I did have issues with the brake feel, it came down to my own issue with bleeding. I didn't get all the air out after the initial bleeding. Once I rectified that, no issues moving forward.

Before commencing the work, I applied a weight to the brake pedal to depress it fully. Removed and installed each caliper with the Brembo. Utilized a one man bleeder systems filled with new brake fluid, removed the weight on the pedal and proceeded to bleed from the furthest point to the closest. Ensure that all air was removed. For piece of mind, I did this twice to make sure.

Hope this helps!

I use HAWK HPS 5.00 pads.

Does the brake pedal feel with BRembo calipers is the same or similar to the original calipers?
I think there is an installation error and interference from the metal plates on the back of the brake pads on the movement of the brake caliper cylinder.


I will install the brembo brake calipers again with other brake pads, and post the result here

Tanks!!!
