i dont' think its worth the money for brembo's - they are overpriced/overrated right now.. but they are great none-the-less - but you can get the same results for half the price.. Just wait for the Rotora Kit - I had a few guys in auto-x and road course tracks compare the two..and Rotora performed the same and for a lot cheaper. Less brake dust too...

i don't tell people what to buy... I just inform them of options so they are aware.. but in the end.. the choice is yours.

I'll be honest I care little about the performance aspect of the brakes since I wont be doing any hardcore lapping in the car. I really love the way the calipers look though. Is it possible to just change the calipers and keep the stock rotors? Does the increased performance result in increased stress on the rotor?

if you just like the look of the calipers - you can have your stock ones powdercoated. There is a member on the site who is going to do powdercoating in the near future.

First, i'm not sure if brembo calipers will fit over stock rotors. Second, if it can, what is the point? The pads and rotors are the most important for brake upgrades. Calipers help but that's if your doing some serious braking.

Upgrade the brake lines to stainless steel to prevent brake fade.

The Gran Turismo Kit for the Civic Si is available. The kit uses 12.9" 2 piece floating rotors with 4 piston calipers. I work for a retailer that specializes in Brembo and Power Slot. I won't list prices or anything though without the permission of the admin here.

Brembo has not verified wether or not the kit for the Si will work for the other models as well or not as of yet.
