hi all

i am looking a second hand brembo GTR brake set for m3. i am believe it is a direct swap to my 1M . is there any thing in particular should i looking for? for example if is not founctional, uneven surface etc etc?

Looks for obvious signs of fluid leaks, cracked piston dust boots/seals, overheating of pads and cracks in the rotors.
