Subject: Bekkers' Big Brake Kit
Well folks, I just received the Big Brake Kit I ordered from
Bekkers(800-624-5410) two weeks ago, and the Calipers look Great! Big
Brembo four piston jobs(I am disappointed they don't say "Brembo" in big
letters on the face) and the Rotors are gorgeous as well, cad plated gold
with chamfered cross-drilled holes, and they are BIG! Supposed to fit with
16" wheels, and I'll know by Saturday, but I have 17" ones coming anyway.
The supplied pads with the kit are Porterfield, and I know nothing about
this brand, but I'll use them until I can spec some Perf Friction's anyway.
Mark at Bekkers is a BMW owner and was quite helpful with my purchase.
BTW, the price is going up soon if it hasn't already, and even with the
increase they have the other kits beat a country mile.
The rotors are Stillen brand, BTW. I have no interest in Bekkers, just
passing along some useful info to those that are interested. Installation
scheduled for Sat, so I'll post when I have them on to let ya'll know how
