It looks cool and the bigger brakes fill up the wheel better...The quality is excellent...If you need new rotors this maybe a good option...Honestly, a lot brake stuff is cosmetic...Wheels got larger and you can't have a pizza cutter back there as a rotor...I mean how fast can you go on the street that you need carbon ceramic brakes? It is race car shit on a street car for looks...Jason

I’m in the middle of nowhere for exotic mechanics and have a QuickJack. My car is my hobby, retired and have more money than time. The cost difference between stock and the FD is probably worth it for me when all considered. I just need to know the down side eg. Noise...squealing etc.

Give them a call, Those guys at FD are so down to earth and honest, I had the pleasure of stopping in their shop while visiting Vegas and one of the guys took 45 mins out of their day just to show me all their products, They talked to me about this very brake set you are looking at, they sold me! (haven't needed to buy a set yet) They will tell you the Pros, cons if any. Well worth the call.

We have never had them make noise or really have any issues...J

I can agree with robin, very honest and knowledgeable with these cars. honesty and integrity is something that's hard to come by these days they have it give them a call.

I’ve been dealing with Jeff for over ten years. Just wanted to hear that there are no problems with the product from the forum.

I purchased the FD BBK a little while ago, and love the upgrade over the stock rotors, the clean stainless steel brake lines that are included, and the black rotor "hat" that each brake rotor shows off. Against a pair of Black rims also, this setup is amazing. Posting some pics for reference of when I purchased, installed, and completed this kit, on my MC.

Looks outstanding !! ( and I’m not a fan of dark wheels, or carbon fiber anything, but can’t deny that it’s a great looking combination ! ) (y) (y)
