I can stop on a dime AND that is with the crappy stock pads!
Glad you're happy with the setup, the alignment isn't off by much- in fact the bracket only needs to be shaved by 6.5mm in one dimension to be perfect. I spent a bit of time measuring and planning this out.
Also, the ECS kit doesn't use m3 rotors, rather they use the performance rotors for the 330 that maintains all the dimensions of a stock rotor, the m3 rotors are also the same dimensions with the exception that the rotor thickness is slightly greater at 28mm vs 25mm.
