Ooh... that looks pretty cool. If I hadn't just upgraded my front rotors I would consider it.

I got the email earlier. Looks nice, especially with those style 32s.

The wheels in the above photograph are 17 inch style 32. No spacers are used the fit on perfectly.

The intro price is quiet a bit lower than that... well half that actually. Currently I have the kit with Two Piece rotors opening price of $1299.95

I would consider them if I have a 540 or M5. Overkill for my 525.

The intro price is right, and the kit seems to be Brembo.
However, it's more like a "want" item as opposed to a "need" item.
However, if I were in the market for new brakes, I wouldn't skip a beat and snag them in a jiffy. If the price stays the same, once my brakes will need replacement, i will look hard at these. If the price will go up to what Igor alluded to, I know I will pass......

I probably know the answer to this question.. Will they fit over Style 33s 16"? My winter wheel.

As seen in the photo below fitment with 17s is already really tight. The barrel of a 16 is going to have issues sliding over the calipers. Long story short, you need at least 17s. You could consider it a great excuse to convert your summer wheels to winter wheels and pick up another nice set ;)

Many people prefer the easy of install of the front only brake upgrades. Most users go to a more aggressive pad out back to compensate for the upgrade in the front. As for our kits we currently do not offer a rear BBK using BMW performance calipers.
