Wow, I always imagined a BBK would be a really tough job, but this looks quite straightforward! I like it!

BBKs are only tricky when you're fitting them to stuff they weren't meant for.
If they're meant for that vehicle. It's essentially a bolt on affair and figure out rims that clear them.

yup!! Well put! There's a little labor work you have to do....i.e. cutting the dust shields for the Rotors to fit, but otherwise, fairly simple indeed.

...and I must say, I've had theses brakes on since mid-summer, and I have to say I love them a lot better than OEM. Much, much smoother.

I sold the set I had.
When I looked into putting them on my M3 I'd need new brackets and rotors to properly fit as the offset of the rotor was different.
They would've looked so nasty with them huge red calipers on a IR car.
But oh well. Atleast the car came with floated drilled euro rotors, SS lines and upgraded pads.

Really? From Rotora?
Everything I needed for fitment came with the set. Only thing I had to do is to cut the dust shields.
