yes will be tracking the car.

Johnny at KCR Performance (Sydney based) might be able to help you with a deal. Send a PM to Johnca.

I've just purchased a Brembo big brake kit from KCR Perfomance. The kit includes 6 piston fronts and 4 piston rears

I got them in my wheel package, and they are cheap and nasty.

You should look into better tyres after you get new brakes.
yes happy with them for now. Had worse and really don't feel any different to my f1s I had. Will be changing soon

OP, IMO have a look at 330ci brakes as the discs are bigger (325mm front, 320mm rear) or M3 brakes (328mm f/r). Quite sure both will need mounts.

The last time I checked these BMW performance brakes, they are built by brembo but only have one pad available as they are a BMW designed kit.
Looked into the 330 brakes easy to fit front but rear needs some alterations. Also I want them to look good aswell.
Ecs is wining hands down. Performance, price & aesthetics
