When its time for replacement rings, would we have to order them thru you or are they something we can find in the states.

Yep, I am Paypal ready. I just don't want to put the money and wait 6 months for development though.

With the current development list, around 6-8 weeks.

We have the rings manufactured to our design. Replacements are no problem and we ship internationally anyway.

Pardon my ignorance but why can I see the pad extruding from the bottom of the caliper? Is that normal and will it have any negative effects?

None at all. Perfectly normal. The pistons inside the caliper do the work.

That's not bad - how about the price? How much will the set for front and rears run?

It’s not easy to put a price on as it depends what calipers we use and how much time the adaptors take. It might be £700, it might be £1000 for the rear kit.

If a group buy happens for front and rear (if you ever find the time / money to develop the rears) I'm in.

Group buys will be difficult across continents, but I'll post something up if we get someone to commit to getting the rears developed.

How do these Brembo calipers (coming from renault megane 3 RS 265HP) compare to the OEM M4 calipers?

The power doesn’t really mean a lot. The same calipers are used on the Aston Martin Vantage, so they’re more than up to the job.
We’ve had them tested for a day at Brands Hatch by a professional race driver and he couldn’t fault them. We’ve also supplied them to a couple of companies who rent M3s at the ‘Ring, again they’ve had no issues at all.

Yes I can imagine that these callipers used on may sports car including mitsu EVOs are even better than the OEM M4 blue callipers.

Have you had any chance to compare them in fact of stiffness and pedal feeling?

Stiffness of caliper? Compared to what?
Pedal feel is almost the same as OEM. Total piston area is very similar.

My question is:
is it better to adapt the M4 callipers on the E92 m3 or buy your kit with the brembo aston martin callipers?

That would need input from someone who’s fitted both. I can’t see the M4 calipers being significantly better or worse than these RenaultSport Brembos. The bonus with this kit is you don’t need to adapt anything. The kit bolts straight upto the OEM 360mm discs with no extra hardware needed.
