Talking New BBK

New BBK front & rear installed last week. They are from PB-Brakes: 380 mm 8 pots front, 356 mm 6 pots rear. I have lost the e-park brake, but not a big issue for my daily use of the car. Here some pics:

I take it this is a DCT then which you use in park to stop it rolling.

Also not worried that you might not be able to stop the car in an emergency?

When stopped, the car is firm and does not roll if in "P": the "P" position of the DCT keeps the car away from movements independently of the hand brake.

For what concern emergencies when driving.... I have been driving around for 26 years and never used the hand brake for such a kind of situations...

Anyway, i agree with you: that's the real trade off to take into account...

Reason vs emotion...

That's some serious bling!

Have you had a chance to track the car yet and give those new breaks a workout?

Did you do any modifications to the stock brake cooling ducts ?

Tue cooling ducts are stock, i changed the calipers, rotors, pads and lines.

The pads are still settling so no track yet.

wheels make the the breaks look very small, are those 20s? I have 19s on mine and seem just about right. Nice break though would be questionable w/o the electronic parking break.
