There are two things to note:

- You have to use steel braided brake lines for the R56. Even the regular rubber lines for the R56 are too thick.

- You need to modify the protection plate

I've got them in my Mini and went to track days. They do a really good job. I had before a Wilwood kit and I find this Brembo JCW R56 BBK working better than the Wilwood one. Maybe a bit heavier because they are bigger but really good even in everyday use.
