    That came out great @STINGER. How is it compared to the factory brakes?

    It feels very OEM, doesn't make any noises and is not grabby, if somebody with a Stinger drives it he will not know it has upgraded brakes, maybe the pedal is slightly heavier but I honestly don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me. I haven't put the brakes through its paces yet, but I bedded in the pads and did a few high speed tests, basically it just stops, no vibration, hesitation or anything.

    I am sure I would have been happy with upgraded rotors and pads on the OEM brakes, but with the bigger wheels I wanted bigger brakes for the looks department and to upgrade the OEM rotors and pads I will pay $2.5K, so $4.1K for an all out BBK sounded like a very good deal to me.

    @STINGER. My compliments. That's a spectacular ride. I'm interested in the brakes. I'll look into them now. In the meantime, I'm still using the stock shocks with a set of Eibach's. They work great now that 1 - The new software was downloaded to my car on October 15 improving the car I received in November 2017 in a number of ways. And 2 - I installed a solenoid make or break switch to default the suspension to full stiff. And it's STIFF! No need for shocks/structs any more.
    Thanks for doing the early adopter work on the brakes!!

    Thanks. Interesting idea you have there with the break switch, you should do a write up maybe some people would like to do the same.

    Now that I have driven with my new brakes for a while I can say they are awesome . Even after I bedded them it kept on getting better and better for like a week, maybe I wasn't hard enough in the bedding. Anyways, I highly recommend them they are very good, I braked really hard several times from above 100mph and it just stops. Because they brake so well, you can control the brake even when hard braking, I dont know if I am explaining this correctly, but with the stock brakes if you brake hard it will stop (with vibration) but you cannot control how hard, its either very hard or mildly hard. With these brakes even when hard braking during turns for example you can control how hard you stop very easily and confidently.

    Whats good also is the dust is less and they don't make any noise.

    That's great to hear @STINGER. The technical term for what you are describing is 'modulation'. Modulating is how well you can control the finer (smaller) inputs and outputs of an analog system. Digitally it can be compared with resolution. :-)
