I GOT MY BRAKES!!!

Here they are, and they look gorgeous! They are KVR cross-drilled and slotted rotors with silver anodizing, and KVR carbon fibre, kevlar insulated brake pads! I'll take more pics tomorrow when they go on.

Yeah Ced, unfortunately they are no bigger than stock. Oh well, I think I will do some driving tomorrow to see how well they work.

I got the rotors and pads from Group 9 Performance. They are a bit costly. The whole package may run like $650.

Damn that's nice....

Are those 4-piston type...$650 is not bad at all for all 4 rotors, and calipers with carbon fiber pads.

Awesome.., I think I'll reconsider buying another car for a while....

No those are not 4-piston calipers. They are just the stock ones. 4-piston would run the price into the stratosphere. You're talkin like $2K for that.
