    hi everyone one.

    any one else run the VWR 352mm big brake kit

    From what i can find i have only 1 option for pads and rotors, and that the ones they sell.

    Replacement rotors are $1300 and pads are $300

    I have found these but prefer not to use drilled rotors

    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.

    Looking for an upgrade for my 7.5 R, has anyone tried the new APR kit? Thoughts on value given that they'll be about $5k landed after duty/GST?

    My 2 cents coming from owning the VWR BBK, I would suggest looking at the AP Racing 6 pot set from VSport. I think if you are running track days and having to get the consumables (pads/rotors) going more mainstream is going to give you more options. (same as GT's above your post) Saying this, most will use the AP Racing pad size, just confirm these details too...

    Great point. Will check pad availability for those APR brakes...

    @grandturismo where did you get the AP Racing setup? Can't seem to find them on the V-Sport website

    I learnt the VWR use the same pads as Evo 8 brembo's
    the rotors are the pain as they are 352MM
    If you have the later 355 its much easier

    Just found this bit of info from APR about their brake kit above:

    All of these pads would fit:
    FMSI D1116
    Hawk Performance HB616x.607
    PFC 9195
    Endless RCP112
    Ferodo (Street) FDS4212
    Ferodo (Race) FRP3100
    G-Loc GP1365
    Mintex MDB3115
    Pagid 8005


    Think I'll give em a shot

    Seems I'm guinea pig for the new APR brake kit... apparently the first customer in Aus to get them fitted. Already discovered that the stock 7.5 R wheels (19" Spielberg) do not clear the calipers, so 8mm (maybe 10mm) spacers are required. Shop is going to get those in and onto the car first thing tomorrow morning; can't wait!

    APR BBK fitted! 300km bed-in procedure so can't comment on performance for a while, although initial bite is noticeably harder than before, but still progressive enough to easily drive smoothly.

    The black coating on the rotors mostly wore off after the shop's test drive, and completely gone after my 25km drive to work.

    Stock 19" Spielberg rims don't fit over these calipers; 8mm spacers are necessary.
