We usually never let the members who signed up disappointed, but please help to spread the words out and get more people to the GB.

Should I rebuild my calipers at the same time?

I'm planning to do the RB rotors + rebuild combo or go all out with an aftermarket BBK. I'm waiting to hear back from Warren

Your are added to the list.

You don't have to rebuild the calipers now if the pistons are in good shape and functioning properly.

Once you become a member of this GB (with a purchase of either stock size two piece or BBK) you will be eligible to purchase the rebuild kit, in the future if you ever need to rebuild your stock calipers with the same discount when this thread is closed at (20% or 15%). Other accessories such as brake pads, brake lines, brake fluids etc at 10% discount.

Warren, can you confirm the weights of the rotors.

You have listed the OEM rotor as 21.2 lbs.
The RB 338x28 as 16.5 lbs.
The RB 350x28 as 14.5 lbs.

I would have thought the RB 338 would weigh less than the RB 350?

Actual weight for the 350x28 is 18.9 lbs. and is now listed with correct weight savings of about 2.3 lbs. when compared to OE.

Eddie135: "I am planinng to change both front and rear together but cannot find any rear upgrades from RB?"

http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showp...9&postcount=14

Get Eddie sign up here for the front and we will make rear BBK two piece upgrade available - It will be the same size as for 335/330i rear (336x24) which we already made for 335/330i owners.

A make a lot of sense progressive upgrade by keeping your factory Brembo calipers, all you need is to have your caliper rebuilt with RB's tougher and more durable pistons & seals/boots, plus big two piece rotors. This upgrade can save you a lot of $$$ and perform much better than any of the BBK out there.

For those already purchased RB rear two piece can keep the hats and just purchase the larger discs and adapter for an instant and economical BBK

I am in. Want front and rear rebuild kits.
Front rotors I think I want to stay with stock size rotors, I use 17" wheels for the track. Cheaper rubber and lighter.
When can we order.

I noticed more people said yah on the 1addicts forum.
Maybe they cannot get on to this site.
For me, it took 6 different tries at two sessions to get past the security words.
First time I gave up.

I think it's a smart decision. We believe if you have your OE calipers rebuilt plus upgrade to two piece rotors, and optimize the brake pads which we also offer), it will be the most cost effective way to own a well perform brake system that can outperform some of the BBK cost several times more, while keep your stock set including 17" wheel for a lower running/maintenance cost for cheaper tires and everything else.

This is the kits we like to see more and more 135i guys would adopt in following the same upgrade path.
