All valid points but not a concern…

As for the other part of my questions…any thoughts about other things to do or inspect since the front end will be off the car?

Valid point. That said, it's an aftermarket warranty and an independent mechanic. I have no concerns about coverage.

I have a 65K mile 2006. First mod I did was the pulley (Cravenspeed 15% that I won as an AMVIV door prize). Now the car is making a funny growl above 2500 rpm and my mechanic thinks it's the blower...

Brake line confusion - R53 upgrade to R56 (R53 JCW)

I have a late model 2006 R53 (not late enough however to get the JCW brakes fitted as stock :)). Decided to upgrade my front brakes and found the most cost effective solution was to get cast-off R56...

R53 to R56 brake swap question

I heard a rumor that to get the improved barking I was hoping for with the R56 brakes I need to swap out the master cylinder. It kind of makes sense...given that the piston in the R56 brakes is...

Very interested...Do the rotors have any scoring at all on them? And I see four lines, front and back? Or does each corner take two lines?

Best place to get stock R56 front rotors and ceramic pads?

Just scored some R56 calipers to put on my R53 (same as the R53 JCW brakes). Now I need to find rotors and ceramic pads.

I can't seem to find any stock rotors on line...only slotted, drilled,...

Currently drive an R53, looking for a set of front R56 brakes (or R53 JCW brakes since they are the same brakes). Complete would be best, but calipers would be a good start. Hoping one of you that...
