Anyone here run this kit? Seems like a much more reasonably priced option compared to other BBKs for a 6/4 piston setup using ZL1 calipers.

Interesting.

Looks like a nice alternative. I too am interested in if anyone has this set up.

Nice find!

No go for me. Looks like they took a caliper designed to be axially-mounted and machined them to accept a radial mount. Really depends on how much material they needed to machine out to make the new mounting position work. Might be OK for mild street driving, but I would NOT use these for any track work.

Bottom line - never cheap out on your braking system. It's the only thing between you and serious injury or possible death.

I'm not seeing a clear advantage of this over stock F8X iron brakes

If it isn't made for the BMW F80 how do you know if the pistons are sized right.

I would be interested in this kit as well.

I couldn't find a number on their website so I reached out to them for more information. Will report when I hear back.

Thoughts on this vs the M2 C kit?

Hello

I'm the owner of Signature Werks. We have been running our ZL1 Big Brake Kit on our race car for over three years now. They are fantastic, we are going to run the Bimmer Change and Global Time Attack next year. I'm happy to show you all our builds and share some track results and lap time with you.

Our brackets are machined from heat-treated 7075-T6 billet aluminum. The shear strength of 7075-T6 is nearly double of 6061-T6. Brake pads are from Dixcel, the company that race the Super GT in Japan with the G82 M4 GT3 race car. SS lines are from Goodridge, a well-known company based in the UK. The calipers are brand new from ACDelco. Nothing is considered cheap here. Let us know if you have any other questions. I'm happy to answer them for you

Can you confirm the size of the rear rotors for the F80 kit? Who makes your two piece rotors?
