Yeah they seemed fine. I compared the new and old before I installed them and they gave a good deal of resistance. I'm thinking (and hoping) my brother doesn't know what he's talking about.

They don't look that great in person. Plus they're skinny. If I recall they're only a 7 or 7.5" width (one or the other, not staggered). They came on some facelifted 330s without the sport package.

F Dreamforce and everything it stands for, I mock it's flagrant lack of tangible thought leadership and attendance by hordes of late to the party wannabe techtards. Where were they when Comdex was pumping?

I joke, but it's all so much marketing fluff save a few rare exceptions (said the tech marketing guy with a [semi] cloud angle to his wares)...

Yup. They have unique brackets and everything to hold the brake lines and bolt up to the knuckle.

Assuming they don't fit other models, I'd say it's either in his head or they're DOA.
