Merlin, brembo brakes are racing setups almost. They are expensive, and you'd see brembo in big letters on the caliper 9 x out of 10.

But in the small event you have them, then you got a great deal buying that car.

You wouldnt see "brembo" on the rotors, however I think they have that gold look to them.

Most likely you'd buy the whole setup though, not just rotors. Oh well who knows?

Default Cross Drilled Update

I just purchased a set of Brembo Slotted rotors and Akebono ProACT Ceramic Pads. They should be in next week. Hopefully this will eliminate the shimmy I get when braking at high speed. :P

i dumped my RSM'* last weekend. Got a VERY bad vibration under breaking with them. I kept the quiet-stop pads and they work very well with the generic solid rotors i replaced them with. I have more braking power with these and more pedel pressure as well. Maybe I got a bad set, maybe I warped them out who knows, but for 20 bucks a rotor i can afford to replace them 8 times over for what i paid for the RSM'*.
