Post Brembo GT-S System - E90 M3

I haven't seen much about the GT-S systems and wanted to contribute to the collective forum knowledge here - since I would've found it useful had I found something. I spent a while looking across various systems and settled on this. Recently specced and purchased a Brembo GT-S BBK kit (365x34, 345x28mm for easiest 18" wheel clearance)

TL;DR: needed front and rear paired systems with great functionality and support for servicing, plug and play obviously with easy 18" wheel fitment. I also wanted something that wasn't a bright color. After looking at the market options I really liked the Brembo GT-R system with all the features and the nickel finish (Who wouldnt?). Its quite a high dollar system which put it out of my range until I came across a newish? setup from Brembo. Difference between GT GTS and GTR are the pistons, featuring the higher grade heat exchange characteristics and no external dust seals. The exterior finish is a hard anodize black with the classic motorsport Brembo red lettering - which I found appealing. Its GT style body with some bits from motorsport calipers - a hybrid system if you will?

I have more info in my install/project thread (here) , so I wont pollute with too much stuff here. Also looked at the go-to StopTechs as well as Sparta systems, but balancing pricing, spec, sizing, finish and brand - stuck with Brembo.

Needless to say the build quality is great. The whole setup ends up with an OEM-like look, disappearing into the shadows of the wheel. Braking is now massively predictable, consistent and stable. Modulating brake force is a lot easier with much better feedback from the system. I am very much looking forward to putting these to use on the track once some other bits get upgraded on the car.

Very subtle and clean look! If you don't mind me asking, where did you order them from?

They look great I just can't stand that you still need to remove the caliper for pad swaps

I havent yet - but it will see a lot of track time. I still have to work through replacing some suspension bits with worn bushings (updating to spherical), have blown endlinks and etc.
