Just got home today and found this on my doorstep. Hopefully will get them71807181 installed this weekend. I'm curious as to the weight differences with the stock setup. The disc is a two piece, with an alluminum hat, so even though the size is increased, the weight should be about the same.The calipers are a beautiful one piece monoblock. If anyone has worked on their front brakes, please chime in with any info, torque specs, or any tricks to a smooth assembly.

If I ever upgrade, this would be the only choice for me.
Good luck!

Do they come with new lines? If not I would recommend looking at some braided brake lines to go with them.

Does anyone know how these compare to the Wilwood brakes? I've heard good things about both, but prices are very different.

They do come with new lines, although not braided. As far as the comparison to the Wilwood, I don't know. The price was almost double, but I liked the idea of the OEM fitment.

Anyone know the torque specs for the caliper bolts and the disc retaining bolts?

Awesome! Can't wait to see the pics of them on the car.

As far as Wilwood vs Brembo, Wilwood makes fantastic brakes so either one is a great choice. However, there is something about that Brembo logo peering out from behind the spokes, especially on an Italian car that has the option in Europe, that is especially appealing.

Dragging this one back up. Does anyone know which aftermarket wheels fit this brake package?
