How does it perform now?
Long said the whole kit is 3400, so I am assuming that it will cost 1700 for the front brakes he purchased.

Thanks for the write up Long, I just ordered the Wilwood kit from UUC Motorworks and will be using this for sure. I take it to bleed the brakes I just undo the bleed nipple and pump the brake `till fluid runs ?

Very nice mod and very well written, they really fill up the front wheel opening.

In the above photo, note that E92 rotors have a Geomet coating to eliminate rusting on the rotor areas not swept by the brake pads. Another nice little touch on the E92.

BBK's are not necessarily designed to make you stop quicker, but instead allow you to stop quicker more often by generating less heat (more surface area) and disapating the heat that is generated faster (vented).

Yes, but by pinching the brake line is there a possibility of damaging it?

keeping it kinked for long periods of time will damage it but pinching it for a lil but wont hurt it. the lines are pretty dense as it is and keep in mind the fluid gets hottt so the line has to be able to take punishment.
