PureMS Brake kit (http://www.pure-motorsport.com/products/description.php/II=810/CA=309/PA=3)

Thinking of getting this kit since I have to replace my front rotors and pads.

Worth it? I wanted to get the Power Slot rotors, though theyre an additional $156.

Thoughts? Or should I just stick to stock sized rotors. I dont track but I do drive hard n fast.

Thanks.

I'm gonna say yes since the part number reads 'B5A8kit'...

LOL, didnt even noticed that.

So it's TT carriers and A8 sized rotors then Im assuming.

The question is then is it worth it, anyone w/ the upgrade already?

Unfortunately Im stuck w/ my stock 16" wheels for awhile. So the A8 upgrade seems to be my best bet if I dont want to stick w/ stock rotors.

16's dont fit over this kit? I am lookin for some snow tires and wheels. I guess i will have to do a 17" wheel

Most 16" wheels will fit over this kit just fine.
Factory 16" swing wheels for example fit.

Does someone have the part number for the TT carriers?

16" wheels wouldn't fit over the 13.1" ECSbrakes but will fit fine over the A8 brakes.

Rieger is correct. 16" wheels will NOT fit over the ECS Stage I kit. My 17" FLIKS just clear by a few millimeters.

a lot of wheels 15" 16" and some 17" wont fit in mine... and I have a Brembo 12.8 kit with 4 piston calipers.
