I think he's referring to his 'big brake kit' ;)

I like cross-drilled rotors, because they're nice and discreet, but I think I would have gone for black calipers. The trouble with red ones nowadays, especially when they're aftermarket, is that from a distance they look like those cheapo plastic caliper covers on eBay for $10.

I first thought of BBS, well known manufacturer of ultimate rims... YEs BBK makes sense! well Tortoise, do you also have the supercharged engine to match the brakes now?

Rotora dun have black ones, the other options were anodised blue or chrome, got the red instead.

yep there's lotsa those cheapo covers out there but they dun make cheapo bigger discs, and in Singapore, if some are laughing off my brake set as those cheapo covers type, then they are probably from the mountains hahahahaa
:D :D :D

355mm rotors, come with 4 pot Rotora caliper, with mounting brackets and 0-500 brake pads. It comes with installation manual, stickers etc as well, packed nicely in a box.

the rotors are cross drilled & slotted, but not ceramic, that will be like $15,000 if i opt for it (if there's such an option) and it wun justify that unless the EOS's maker is Ferrari or Porsche hahahah

more info at www.rotora.com :D <the kit is similar for the Golf GTI MK V and EOS), my wife's GTI runs on the 330mm 4 pot kit as well :D
