Will this setup work on stock 18's? I am assuming you need to run spacers?

Wow you brake so much later than I did my first time there. I'm sold haha

Very nice! I need to make a trip out there one day. I think I may pull the trigger on this set up.

Thanks! Yes, Laguna Seca is Bucket List stuff. Fortunately I am reasonably close so I get to got there every now and then

I really think these brakes are a great choice. The kit looks good (got the right proportions), weighs slightly less than stock, can take the abuse of a track day, works with 18" wheels, got lots of pad options, pads can be changed in minutes and does not break your wallet like some other BBK's do.

Seriously considering this when it comes time to replace my brakes! Thanks for the informative post. I have a friend that could probably do the machining for me, I can rebuild and powder coat them myself to cut down on costs. I run the stock 18"s so I'd need to add spacers, rotors, brackets, and lines. That's where things begin to add up. Such an awesome option for guys like me that can't afford a "proper" BBK. The only thing is, I have yet to surpass the performance of the stock brakes.

Even if you can afford a "proper" BBK, you have to ask yourself why waste it? I'm sure there are instances where it makes sense and that those brakes are better, but bigger is also heavier and that has some negative effects also.

I put my kit togehter, for under $2500. That included powder coating and rebuilding (new seals and high temp dust boots) calipers. Brackets from Ralley Road and Polar. SS lines, Motul 600 fluid, ECS 2 piece rotors, and Hawk Pads. Granted I got some deals along the way, but still, even so, you should be able to come close to that.

I ran 18 Apex's when I had mine with these and they cleared just fine.

Is it possible to make this kit work with the e92 front rotors (360x30) or is ZCP the biggest you can run?

I'm working on a different caliper that will be turn-key with the E92 front rotors. They absolutely require modification to the front shield to even mount, however.

I'm absurdly busy with domestic home renovations, so there's no time frame on delivery quite yet.
