Brembo 405mm GT brake upgrade

I want to thank everyone at European Auto Source for helping me source and install the KW coilovers modules to properly use my Sport modes, and the Brembo 16" (405mm) Gran Tursimo brakes.

After 6 months of ownership and 12,900 miles later, my daily commuter has been serving me well. I also went to my first track event at Chuckwalla Raceway on Saturday, all I have to say is that it was ridiculously fun. The course felt very technical and on the front and back straights I was reaching speeds in excess of 110mph.

Unfortunately I didnt have the Brembo's when I went but the stock brakes were more than enough to bring the car down to manageable speeds in the corners.

It was also great to be able to drive in Sport+ and with DSC off to maximize the performance benefits of the suspension.

Current Mods:
Brembo GT 16" (405mm)
BBS LM-R 20"
KW V3 Coilovers and EDC fix
MXP E9x prototype exhaust (catback)
JB Stage 1 N55
Macht Schnell Spacers 18mm & 10mm
Huper Optik tint
OEM Whiteline Taillights
DVD in motion - Programming by EAS
LED Interior lighting - Joe @ Trinity Autosport

Upcoming mods:
New wheels for my midyear refresh
