actually, if there was any interest, i was thinking about getting some caliper brackets machined so you can run 400mm endless rotors up front -- if i ever decide to get this done i'd let you guys have a crack at 'em.

you'd have to be running the same calipers as me, and you'd have to get rotor hats made. the endless rotor surfaces are something like 750-800/ea -- you'd need 2 for the front.

anyway, it's just an idea i've been kicking around in my head for the past couple of months haha

Thank You for all the advice. I just notied another thread where several people are complaining the Brembo's squeal a lot?? Did either of you have this problem?

I did think about keeping the factory system and you guys are right, mods and upgrades can break you but, why do it if not done right..siding with the expert "ROMINL"

How much did the front kit cost. I am suffering right now with cheap brake parts. Rominl is always right. If there is anything I have learned in the last 4 or 5 years on CL is that this guy knows whats up!

Hell yeah!! If its a nonrecourse state (like CA) buy a new car and a second house, and then stop paying for the first. The strategic default is popular in most states right now
