µ is the coefficient of friction in the science world so, it makes sense.

I'd get them just to have teal accents on my car

I don't think I've ever seen them on a MINI....but I've been surprised before. It's funny to find out when big companies (like cusco) actually make parts for our cars while nobody hears about them.

hahah yup I was right about the surprise thing. Another big JDM company that just doesn't get enough exposure. Right on the front page a pic of a MINI sporting their brakes.

Apparently Mevius is their euro branch of the company

Front: Racing 4pistons caliper kit
(345mm)

Rear : Sports Disk Rotor

Didn't someone say you could do a hub and breaks conversion somewhere? I know it's $$$, but by the time I'm in the market for brakes it might be a possibility...

Yah, you could technically have hubs machined to to fit. But there's no need if you're just doing it to fit these brakes. As I posted, they make a kit specifically designed for our cars already so you can keep your stock hubs

Oh. I feel silly now... I swear, every time I get some dumb idea in my head, you're always around to correct me. Thank God for that... Lord knows what I might've tried if it weren't for you guys here...
