Well, not entirely true. For other makes they don't necessarily make awesome stuff, they just focus moreso on racing brakes. You spec them out, find or make a bracket, and mount them up. They're not pre-packaged bolt-on kits. You could totally spec out a comparable AP Racing brake kit for the MINI, sans JCC logo. The hard part would be figuring out how to mount them up.

it would be cool to have the PUMA logo, kinda like how they have their logo on the toe of their shoes

Since the kit originally pictured is now on my car, I could simply look on the AP made bracket and get you the part number.

I just put them on last night after ordering a set of pads from Porterfield and what a difference....

Note...Please don't ask who my friend's sisters cousins mother's neighbor is

Hahahah, can you get me a MINI that doesn't have 175,000 miles on it, too?

Thanks for the offer! Hopefully someone else will take you up on it.
