Spent the weekend flushing the old B. Fluid cleaning the Calipers and, (against my better judgment), painting them. Extra 5hp when they are red I'm told! Definitely happy with the color and braking improvements.
How's your setup treating you? I'm looking at going down the same road soon. Looking for improvements that'll fit behind stock wheels without breaking the bank. It's my wife's daily, she wants red calipers and when I take it out I definitely need better brakes 馃槻

Anyone know why good front rotors are so hard to find? The Autoexe ones are too many Yen for me. Would love to hear what folks are running short of springing for a BBK.

I have zero regrets. Brakes are performing WAY better than stock, definitely 馃挴 more confident especially braking at higher speeds.

The only comment I do have is no matter how much I cleaned and prepped the brakes and baked the paint on they still chip. You still have to be careful around the brake paint with pressure washers. If you hit them with the pressure washer to close the paint wheel chip. So be sure to have some touch up paint around that you can just apply with a Q-tip every now and then.

The touchless auto car wash under carriage/rocker panel jets seem to be the culprit. It doesn鈥檛 generally happen when I am pressure washing the car myself.

@ Sprocket_mzzoom
Have you installed the new CS stainless steel braid brake lines? I already did and I am highly recommending it to you to pair with our SP Performance
No not yet. I was waiting to see peoples impressions on the build quality. With that being said, it looks like they will be on the list for this summer.
