It's worth upgrading to the bigger size rotor up the front. I'm running the Premium Brake package, 330mm, and it pulls up so nice. Not only that, but behind 19" wheels, it really looks the goods.

Good package Darren!

PBR brake upgrade kit is available in red which is powder coated rather then a cheap paint.

What im asking is if FTG can also get these in red as per ones displayed on pbr website.


The canary yellow ones look hot too depending what colour your car was...but yeh red looks awesome

Do they stop a fair bit better then the stock ba brakes? im deciding whether to go these or slotted rotors and good pads on teh stock calipers.

f**k yes...well the Premium brakes/base FPV brakes which i think were the PBRs performed way better under heavy braking...i actually thought the stock ones were relly bad....dunno whether that was just due to the extra 200kgs the BAs have over the EF/ELs but yeh didnt like the stocko brakes at all...

yea id love to buy a big set of brakes like theirs but im more concerned with paying the car off atm so they will have to wait. This is looking like the short time fix though, Just getting some funds together.

How easy are they to bolt on to an AUII XR8??
And do I need to consider the rear stocko brakes...
