This has all been answered previously. Those are not G01 rotors. The pads need to be milled to clear the rotor hat. You going do that every time you need new pads? Screw that.

I was quoted $1880 USD for the full kit with 1 set of pads. Waiting on pricing with 3 sets of pads and extra bolts + aluminum hub ring. Just in case I’d like to have spares on the shelf.

Not sure about installation time, the brake lines should probably also be changed + full brake flush. Then there’s the rear axle that needs at least new pads and probably some rotors, and a matching powder coat treatment.

Probably best not to do math

Those are some sexy brakes! How do they compare to stock in your opinion?

bought these Brembos on the bay. they are a great price for a good setup, even though I would say they only improved 20%. I will look at upgrading to the x5 brakes next year for legit stopping power.

I 'll be upgrading to X5M brakes soon. I bought the calipers used on ebay last year but then ran into some issues when I purchased after market rotors from brakenetic.

You can read about it here https://f15.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1572371

I just purchased OEM F85 Rotors albeit at double the cost of the brakenetic ones, which is why I waited so long to get them. They should be arriving today.

I'll be reaching out to hardparker for the bolts and spacers and will start a new thread with pics once they arrive.

Why the extra bolts and aluminum hub ring? That didn't come with the $1880 full kit?

Did they come from Tro Nik powdercoated just like this in red?

They look great!

Has anyone found a coding option for sport brakes like with the f30 and f15?

Not that I've seen. I've meant to search the DSC the next time I do a coding session, but I think it's unlikely, since there was no brake upgrade option for the X3. Still, I wonder if there might be tuneable parameters for brake assist to help pedal feel.

Are the brakes spongy? If so perhaps there's some air in the brake lines and they just need to be bled?
