Alrighty i was needing to do my brakes on my BK2 2.0T so i said screw it ill pull the trigger and do the brembos i've wanted to do.

So my plan was to either get drilled/slotted rotors from R1 Concepts, and get either ebc pads or whatever else i wanted.

Cost for R1 concepts Drilled/slotted rotors for base model was roughly $300 with tax.
EBC (Yellow/Red) Front & rear $300-400
Total for base brake job was going into the $700 range.

Used RR+ RL Brembo off ebay $200.00 shipped
Used FR+FL Brembo off car-part.com $275 shipped

The fronts just got dropped off this week to powder coat and I have everything to rebuild them now including the fact I needed 4 rebuild kits for the front calipers. Each package does one side within the caliper ... had a brain fart lol

little before and after for the fronts I have the Brembo decal to be installed after I rebuild them new pistons and seals. And I plan to do it the smart way with the brake caliper assembly fluid not brake fluid.

Just an update i tossed the rockauto rebuild kits for the rear which were carlson 41260 and got the brakebest 41260 kit from oreillys any they make a difference. the outer edge is beveled which the carlson ones lack.
The carlson kit is to the left the orielly is on the right. it made a world of a difference. Also when installing these lube the piston up with brake assembly fluid i used mckay got it off ebay for $10. These seals you don't need to put the assembly fluid on. Lube the sides and bottom of the piston and slide it in only after the inner seals are lubed up and installed also by the way. Put the piston in 3/4 the way down then you slide the seal pictured over it and it slides right in the groove.
