If anyone can give some extra info on the touring kit that would be great?
were you referring to my review about the touring kit with hardly any improvement? you have to bear in mind I had braided lines, uprated brake fluid, stoptech grooved discs all around and stoptech pads at the front before I changed to the touring kit, and if you look at the whole set up, the touring kit did not give me much apart from slightly bigger pads, going from OEM to touring kit with better brake pad is going to be a BIG difference. BBK is overkill for a road car, tbh touring kit is over kill for a road car but I love those calipers. lol

No mate but I've got BBK for track use.

You simply cannot compare the OEM brakes to these. The touring kit has 4 pistons compared to the OEMs having 1.

Not 100% but pretty sure the discs are thicker. I think kevh04 uses his touring kit on track so they must be good. Pop him a pm

The Touring kits uses an ST41 caliper, with 4 pistons and yes, a thicker disc too. It's 300mm in diameter but thicker to aid in cooling.

Going from standard brakes to either of these setups will be night and day. The biggest advantage to the BBK is the 2 piece disk setup which is better for dissipating heat and gives a bigger surface area for the pad.

The Touring kit is great value and a huge improvement over standard.

Hope this helps.

Rich

Hi Rich thanks for that,it helps alot.Can i get a price for the following please with p&p to Ireland.Im looking for The Touring kit,the B14 bilstein coilover kit and a set of 15mm spacers.

Thats what i want to begin with but is there anything else i can add to that to improve overall ride quality and keep it nice and tight round corners.

Regards jonathan

I'm pretty sure the touring kit uses the smaller st41 calliper. BBK uses bigger st40

Completely right, St41 is the smaller caliper and the ST40 is used in the BBK

Cheers Trev!

Hi Rich
If in the future i decided to charge my car would the touring kit be able to cope with extra power.

What is the cost of replacement discs and pads for the touring kit,and whats the price of replacement discs and pads for the BBK kit?

I will definitely be getting either one of these kits over the coming weeks so need to know about costs,thanks again for answering all the questions

Regards

I think the touring kit would be fine for forced induction, for road use definitely. The only thing i would say is, if you are charging, and possibly thinking of doing track days or speed runs the Big Brake Kit maybe the route to take. It's future-proofing it that way.

Cost wise for replacement parts, there isn't a huge difference.

Touring kit;

Discs 300.00 (pair)
Pads 99.00 (yellowstuff)

BBK;

Rotors 390.00 (pair)
Pads 112.00 (Yellowstuff)

Hope this comparison helps. Any other questions, let me know!

Rich

who can share experience: putting this kit to a 1.8 requires removing/cutting the whole dust shield?

They are great, if you are running standard then they will be a massive difference. I already had the hoses done on mine, so the pedal feel is much the same. But there is more bite and stopping power. And they look so much better.

Overall I am very happy with them. Oh and you will need 15mm spacers if running standard wheels to clear them. This as well makes the car look even better.

Hi Rich, sorry for the delay in my reply.

We have the Touring kits in stock @ 950.00 inc VAT.
Fitting would be 200.10, including Castrol Response brakefluid.
Total 1150.10 inc VAT

I have two kits in stock, so let me know if you have any questions or would like to book in to get it fitted. I can also ship the kit and fluid out to you, cost-wise to mainland UK would be 20.00 due to weight, but would see you next day with UPS.
