On the Caliper is there any Imprint or anything of Brembo? If so, there should be some part # on the Caliper. I haven't seen a caliper like that. You can get some Custom Pads from this Company Called Porterfields. They will make a Custom Pads and Rotors for your BBK. I would send them a Pad for a Sample to replicate. They can also help identify what caliper it is as well if there is a pad for it.


Edit: Looking at this BBK Combo some more... I think they are the F-Carbon BBK for the M3, but I might be Wrong. If it is. Parts are not available for the Kit and will have to go Custom Route.
