Wow...is there any template of this kit for testing wheel fitment? It's very important.[/b]
I've attached a PDF that indicates the precise dimensions of the caliper. In case you're unable to picture the drawing in the PDF relative to the rest of the assembly, you can use the picture I've attached as a more generic reference, with A = 41.3, B = 110.5, and C = 191.7

Actually, that appears to be a full-on race setup. The rotors in the picture you posted are 2-piece and seem to be much thicker than 28mm. Additionally the caliper shown appears to be 6 or possibly even 8-piston. If Brembo offered that kit to the public, it would likely be in the $3000-4000 range. The kit that they are offering for the Mazda 6 will look much more similar to the picture in the first post.

So the rotors are only available cross-drilled?[/b]
Yes, they are. Brembo offers cross-drilled or slotted on a lot of their BBKs, but they said that since this is such a new product, only cross-drilled will be available.

All cross-drilled holes are bi-angle chamfered at the rotor’s outer surfaces to help reduce the cracking caused by repeated, high stress, high temperature brake applications.

Well, they're not in stock here at RPM's primary location, otherwise I would have probably unboxed a set. All of Brembo's 4-piston calipers look the same, so the picture above is accurate with regards to the caliper itself. The rotor is what is different. They were unable to provide me with a picture of the Mazda 6 rotor, but I didn't really feel that would be necessary. I've attached a shot of the 4-piston caliper on a different rotor and an example of the 3 different colors (on a larger caliper).

Donny, they are a 4 piston system, the price is lower than the $3000-$4000 range, but more expensive than yhour GB price.

Ah, okay. They look a lot bigger than 4-piston for some reason. Thanks for clarifying.

lol.. Well, I don't give out personal info, but I'll say that the first kit was shipped to Virginia. It's up to the customer as to whether or not they want to talk about it on here. ;)

Man, Donny you are a class act.

It was me, be here Friday. I have to say this, I am looking forward to that package. :yesnod:
Working on getting it installed next week. I just don't trust myself with this job, brakes are very important.
Also have to say RPM was great, answered all my questions and kept me up to date every step of the way. If every vendor out there had this kind of customer service the world would be a better place...lol.
