i was just wantingt to know what the differences between my series 3 au xr8 brakes and the series 3 ts50 brakes (non brembo) were?
so fa from what i can find out my brakes are 287mm and the fronts on the ts50 are 329 mm and grooved which i assume means slotted.
does anyone have anymore info on this?
regards from adam

The Premium Brakes, had a modified twin-piston PBR Caliper up front, so that it can hold the 329mm rotor. The rears were the same, with a single piston caliper, with a 289mm rotor. All rotors were slotted and had an elipse like groove in them (for extra cooling), and all calipers had the Tickford logo embossed into it. The setup also had braided brake lines.

I got a set the other day, and will be going on my car next month. Others that have put this setup on their cars, say that there is a pretty big improvement!
