I might be mistaken but I'm pretty sure the Camaro wasn't the first car to come with factory Brembos

True. Before the 5th gen Camaro, Brembo's were on various SRT's, VW's, Evo's, Subaru's, Corvette's, 350Z's, Ferrari's, Lamborghini's, Porsche's, etc... It's even more common today.

I'm a bit confused with this thread too..

No way!

Never hurts to have a good set of brakes.

Not to mention Brembos were aftermarket before they were ever used on factory cars.

Just because a guy put fake brakes on his car doesn't mean he's trying to "bite the Camaros style".

He's biting any car that comes with brembos, so since camaros come with brembos saying he's biting our style is a valid statement. Idk why people are taking this so seriously lmao so damn nitpicky over nothing.

You sure theyre covers? Brembo makes an aftermarket kit for the accord. You can even get a set for a dang Yugo.

They look pretty similar to the ones that are actually on my Camaro, so at a guess I'd say they're real... although seriously oversized for that car

Brembos are so overdone. Even Hyundais have them. Should rock AP Racing.



The choice of F1 and Rally racers..


Brembo is the goto brand for ricers IMO.

Listen, it was a sad attempt at being humorous. No feelings are hurt, so lets just move on

I figured Toyota would use them before Honda... Just in case the gas pedal sticks.
