Re: Brake Upgrades (crusin's60)

you can occasionally find the calipers on car-part.com for decent prices, but you will have to piece together a kit yourself.<p>from the numbers i came up with one time it will cost you around 1200 for the entire bbk finding every deal you can.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>chinaonnitrous1</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><p>Curious is that front and rear?</TD></TR></TABLE><br>yup

Do you really need a BBK for an n/a S60? I would honestly just save your money. The S60 already has fantastic braking ability. The S60 has brakes from an S80, which is a much larger car, and I had an S80, and it also stopped really well. Just make sure you have new pads and rotors, and save yourself the time and money. <p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Impulse922</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">you can occasionally find the calipers on car-part.com for decent prices, but you will have to piece together a kit yourself.<p>from the numbers i came up with one time it will cost you around 1200 for the entire bbk finding every deal you can.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>I wouldn't buy used brake components, it's really not something you should cheap out on. BBK aren't cheap, and there is a reason it's that way.

Re: (cmurphy2266)

Here's a thought so you can have really good brakes and save money. You can buy a decent set of slotted rotors, some aggressive brake pads, some steel braided lines, and some good brake fluid and get just about the same results minus the pimp factor that Brembo, SSBC, or AP Racing might have. A good example would be to buy some EBC slotted and dimpled rotors, some EBC Red or Yellow brake pads, and go to IPD for the steel braided brake lines and you'll have some kick ass brakes that'll probably stop you in the same distance as a BBK, and you'll only spend about $750 minus labor if you don't do it yourself. Try Buybrakes.com, they have all kinds of brake stuff for our car.

Re: (Rezin S60T5)

I bought my EBC slotted and dimpled rotors, Red pads, and steel braided lines from buybrakes.com for my Nissan and they got there in about a week and a half. Plus they only sell brake stuff so I believe that they are a decent place to go for brakes. For my S60 I priced four EBC slotted and dimpled rotors(12" in the front, 11.3" in the rear), and EBC Redstuff pads for street/sport use and it was $548.36 out the door. Add some stainless steel brake lines and some decent brake fluid like Motul and I'm figuring you have a really nice brake package for $700, give or take a few pennies. This was for a 2002 S60 T5, but by all means check other places and they might have a better deals. Good luck!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
