incase anyone here cares (and i'll do a quick post in the speed section as well) but my girlfriend just shot me an email earlier today. She works at Brembo and they just officially released the kit for the 3 and the speed3 (confirmed as the same part).

uses a 330x28 1 piece rotor, 4 piston caliper and all the hardware

shoot me a pm if you have questions, i don't work for any shops or sell them, but have access to some info as....uh, she works there

Ooooo, Brembo. Rotora has some competition now.

I'm assuming its only for the front wheels?

correct, no luck on the rears as the Ebrake always poses an issue

If Brembo was Brembosasha, Brembota, or Brembokosan... Then it would be officially JDM badged FTW.

For now, only JDM and FORD parts touches my car. lol

Street prices starting at $2,000 is right... :(

At least it's a kit and should come with stuff like the existing Brembo Kit:

Right caliper (with brake pads installed)
Right caliper bracket, with nuts and washers
Right rotor (disc & bell assembled)
Right Goodridge® stainless steel braided brake line

Left caliper (with brake pads installed)
Left caliper bracket, with nuts and washers
Left rotor (disc & bell assembled)
Left stainless steel braided brake line

Brake caliper inlet fitting or banjo bolt
Brake caliper inlet copper sealing washer
Brake bleeder hose
Loctite Capsule
4-inch Brembo die-cut sticker

Caliper bracket diagram
Installation Instructions

I would go for the drilled rotor because it keeps the brake cool and increases stopping power.

jk...

I'd probably go slotted If I had $2G to spend on brakes... They look sweet! I wonder how much better they'd feel with good tires... Maybe like the STI brakes?

the rear brakes utilize a mechanical ebrake that holds onto the rotor. you are changing the size and position of the rotor.....so that bracket no longer would fit. since most owners like to have an ebrake, it doesn't make sense to produce a kit for that.


pricing should be around $1500 guys, i don't know what shop gave to a $2k quote, but that's even more than MSRP...they are ripping you off. you can call Race Technologies if you want to go through Brembo rather than a shop, Dani (my girlfriend) will send you in the right direction. but she'll kick my ass if people call her asking dumb questions.

i saw the dimensions of the caliper and everything, but i'm still a little worried about clearing the wheel.

anyone know of like a 'surefit' size of wheels with this upgrade?
