it does a pretty good job of focusing so I doubt I'll use it much.


Nah, already have one ...well my dad had one that he hasn't used in 10 years, so ya, I have one

I tried my 8gb cards in there but they won't work. Even when I reformat them. Idk about the 4gb since I don't have any to test with.

Yeah, not an incredibly well thought out kit. Figures, since UUC pieced it together. Still quality components that I'd definitely consider... if I had an E46.

You would think they would find a more proper wilwood caliper that will cover the whole surface..


Decent price..but does it retain ebrakes too?

Looks like they are just standard 330 sized rotors so e-brake is unmodified. The fronts have an optional 2-piece rotor that is the correct size for the pads:

So I guess if you already have a 330, it's not much of an improvement in thermal mass or cooling, just getting rid of ugly sliding calipers and replacing them with lighter opposed piston aluminum calipers.
