I was looking at the car a little while ago. This is really how the car should have came out of the box...

So tell us more about the brakes now that you have had them for a couple of weeks. Is this a must do mod?

I'll say this for day to day driving it does instill more confidence the bad ass factor is outstanding. If you drive super aggressive it is well worth it. If I'm at the track (planning on Sebring soon) it's damned near a must do.

There is not an overly dramatic improvement because the stock brakes are impressive. Most cars are built for one or two GOOD stops and that's it, the SS is built for more than that. On a V6 I assume this mod would be mind blowing.

All in all I recommend the upgrade for an aggressively driven DD. If you are going to track it I would say it's a must do.

Positive indication of track usage! I remember my 2006 CTS-V and remember trying to get them to that color.

IDK if the powder coating turns like the paint does on these calipers.

Thanks...

Haven't even cleaned them up yet.

I want to sell the whole set though. All 4 calipers with pads and hoses and the rotors.

I've been thinking that shipping with the rotors will be cost prohibitive. If anyone is interested I'm willing to sell the set up without rotors for less cash.

Very sharp looking. I've been considering the brake upgrade as well, but I think I like the standard red look.
