What a busy weekend! I had the timing belt, tensioners, water pump, coolant flush, brake fluid flush, brake pads all around and of course, Euro Sport Tuning's new 2 piece rotors put onto the R! Excuse the dirt on the car, I have been very busy lately.

The Goodies: Hawk Pads and Euro Sport Tuning 2-Piece Rotors




4X4 R :p:





Looks awesome behind the wheels



Test fitting new winter wheels that used to be on a Ferrari 360



My review on the EST 2 piece rotors: Install was straight forward, no suprises. The product looks fantastic, obviously high quality. Driving and handling: will report back in a few days as the car has not been driven much so the brakes have not worked in yet.

Those rotors look pretty nice. I'm hating, just a bit.

So after my daily 1hr commute to the office, I can report back into saying the following:
  • The initial brake grab is much more noticeable
  • Brakes do feel a bit stronger, I guess due to weight savings
  • Got asked at the traffic light about the brakes from a RS4 driver

The increased bite/ "strength" is 99.99999999% due to HPS pads.

Henry please do not post any more pics of your R. I can't take it anymore.

Nice brakes btw.

Sorry I should have mentioned, I was already running HAWK pads with stock rotors before I did the rotor upgrade

Just wondering what size tires are you running? I plan on buying these wheels for my Xmas present to myself, gotta source tires first.
I am running 225/35/19 as I had them lying around, I recommend 235/35/19. If you like the stretched tire look, get 225, otherwise, 235 is the recommended.

Is there a cost saving when replacing rotors?
Frank (EuroSportTuning), I will let you answer this question?

Thanks!

It has been over a year since I started this thread and I still have nothing but good to say about these rotors!
