Bigger discs on stock calipers.

Does anyone know if there is a kit with bigger brakediscs and adaptors for the calipers available? I see some guys have problems with warped discs and maybe a bigger rotor setup together with a different pad compound would help without having to go ceramics or an expensive BBK. I know the calipers may need some grinding to slide down over a bigger disc but that should not be much to modify.
I have done this earlier on other cars with great results so maybe it would work on the F8X's too.

Negative. I've never heard of warped discs being an issue and a larger rotor wouldn't cure that problem anyway. The stock brakes are very good as long as you take care to manage them.

Stock brakes arenít enough for the weight of these cars. My stock set wears in the fronts, not rears. But my BBK is wearing evenly front/ rear, rears a little more. It seems the brake distribution has improved with 6/4 piston BBK

Subscribed to this as I have warped 3 sets of rotors.


I found these but don't know if they are any better than OEM:

Personally i Think there could be a market for such a brakedisc kit. And i see no reason to why it wouldn't work, i have done this myself earlier on other cars.
