Almost 10 months later - the BMW performance brakes (weird gold/green)and SS brake lines (purple) have been installed. Looks like a rave in the wheel well. Dang easy I must say, hardest part of all of it is to remember to attach the new brake line to the caliper first (snug) then install the other end. After that RE-learning curve - 2nd one was 15 minutes...

EDIT: You guys are high maintenance :)

You install factory lines or changed them? Congrats! But honestly pix or it didn't happen.

I saw these brakes in your other thread and asked what brakes they are so I'm asking in here too just incase haha. what an awesome upgrade!

You need better rims now to show off those brakes! How is the braking performance with these?

Sorry for bringing this one back guys :( but I'm gonna be needing bigger brakes soon! anyone tried fitting the new G series front calipers yet? found a thread on the other forum where the F series M4 calipers were a straight bolt - up only requiring use of a 370 - 380 mm or rotor.

There is a mega "master brake thread" somewhere on the internet all about this.
