I would need 135i calipers too which is a solid $1100, then rotors even for a full gb is $900+ shipping + taxes so $1500ish
Woa, I thought 130i had the brembo 135i calipers. Whats is the part number of the stock caliper?

Have you looked into XYZ bbk. They seem more reputable then k2 that even Corvettes are installing them for track duty. Allow for after market pads
Not sure what application any new kit needs in order to be considered credible.

They would probably cost 3k USD for front and back.

What about project Mu or other japan brands?
