I am not sure, I'd have to check one day.

Springs will not achieve the look or drop the KWs get. The only spring that will get remotely close would be the H & R super sport springs TBH.

Honestly they are gorgeous... very happy with the red. And before anyone asks... I went with blank rotors all around because a bunch of people complain about wind noise with the slotted and dimpled rotors. The 370mm look huge. Hopefully stopping power will be increased



looks sick!! Do you have a link to where you purchased your brake kit?

M Performance Big Brake is in

Absolutely love how they look. Rotors are huge and almost completely fill up the whole wheel well. Cannot comment on the performance aspect of them yet... have not had much seat time with them (just got them in yesterday.) Just finished bedding in the brakes and need to code for them... planning on getting that done this week. Also - absolutely no noise from them.

UPDATE 9/11/17 - Got the brakes coded over the weekend. Definitely recommend this if you pick up a BBK. Initial pedal feel and firmness has improved about 25% and brakes seem more responsive. I've had some seat time with the car with many high speed braking. Overall, day to day driving their isn't a huge improvement over the stock brembos... pedal feel is about the same. There may be slightly less initial bite but that could be the more aggressive pads I'm running. It's barely noticeable once you've driven a few days with them. Once the brakes get a little heat in them, the stopping power is great. Where these brakes really shine is the high speed braking. The feeling is very linear and when the brakes are applied hard it will stop you in a hurry... absolutely no fade or performance decrease after multiple stops... which is a problem I experienced with my stock brakes (they started to fade and stopping power was reduced until they cooled back down.) Overall they are definitely an upgrade and I am happy I went through with them. Unless you are tracking the car or doing high speed braking, they probably aren't a huge improvement (for the price) over the stock brembos... but when you take into account high speed braking and track days, these are a lot better then the stock setup. They look badass too.

These are the complete details of the kit I'm running.
  • M Performance Big Brake Kit (Red)
  • 370mm front/345mm rear rotors
  • Stoptech Street Performance Front Brake Pads
  • Stoptech Stainless Steel Brake Lines

that's crazy that you can code the brakes. i guess theres an electronic control between the pedal and the master cylinder?

I can't tell if your kidneys are carbon dual slat or not... If they are where did you get them?

Love the build. The car looks great!

Very nice and clean!

Are those max height on the KW V2 coilovers, or do you have some room to raise it up any higher? That clearance is lowww...

Thanks boss... I know you're very particular so coming from you I appreciate it

They are dual slate gloss black grills. I like them because they match my gloss black perfectly to my lower lip, side skirts and mirrors so it ties everything together imo. I got them at mod bargains.

Thanks! There is definitely room for adjustment. I can raise them up or go lower lol.

Overall the KWs go pretty low. I heard the original versions... the rears at max height is stills drops about as much as h and r sports... so nearly 1-1.5" lower then stock at their highest setting. I have the revised version, so apparently they are better with height adjustment and fixed the original issue. I don't have any plans to raise them anytime soon though but there is room to go up. Hope that helps.
