Just finished installing my kit. I went with the Candy Gold color with Street pads.

Over all the install was pretty simple, I still have to test fit the stock snowflake wheels for clearance ; But I doubt they will clear.

Along with this kit, I also installed the Velossa Tech Stg 1 Cooling ducts.

I wont be surprised if these crap out on you - looks like some fancy cheap knock-off brand

The downsides to an off brand brake setup such as this is the lack of pad choices ( e.g. hawk, CL, porterfield, etc) if its not a standard pad shape and getting replacement parts like rotor rings or seals due to wear or needing a rebuilding.

I've seen countless stories of this when a taiwanese brand brings out a cost competitive BBK only for users to be hung out to dry when they need consumables or real support.

Its a toss of the coin frankly not just on product reliability but your safety and the others on the road.
