You could, but my experience on the track with stock rear calipers/rotors with DS2500 Ferodo rear pads was perfect. Rear calipers would be a waste of money. F80 calipers and rotors bolts right up if you want something cheap and pretty.

I have this kit as well, using stock sized PFC rotors, no issues with the calipers or brackets at all. I'm on a quest for more initial bite but I believe is a matter of finding the right pads for my needs. Other than the delivery wait, there was no issues with my order, Slonik replied all my emails promptly, better than some dealers stateside.
Had the brakes since December '17 and cosmetically there are no issues, paint has no fade, chips, blemishes.

I forgot which pads you're using, but Ferodo DSUno have pretty huge bite. Like unpleasant-on-the-street bite, IMHO.

I'll keep that in mind on my quest for pad nirvana. He shipped ds2500 for me, then went with race technologies pads, now waiting on hawk d70. Forgot all the model numbers, my bad.

I myself was looking for other pad options. Based on the shape he sent me these pads also should work with OEM rotors in this caliper:

Endless RCP117
Pagid 8081
Hawk HB631
Carbotech CT1395
Gloc GP1395

Slonik do you know that the F8x rear brakes just bolt up to E9x M3 rear hubs and fit perfectly if the F8x rotors are used? Iím wondering what the brake bias would be using that rear setup with your 6 piston front brakes and F8x rotors?
