    Neither did I , they just look better and more original , everyone has 4 pot Brembo's :cool:
    EDIT: Keep in mind the bigger disc and caliper fills the space a lot nicer

    I know your in not great rush, (neither am i) but I'll keep you in the loop if I find some at a good price. They seem to be going up in price and staying there and becoming less widely available.

    So did we work out that the brake booster was also a different part number for your SS compared to the Redline?

    @Milo 6.0 i have no issues with the 25mm master cylinder. I think you get a better/harder pedal feel with the bigger master cylinder.

    I found an engineer that will certify this on my car for $550. Now hunting Brembo calipers. Came across some sellers on Gumtree but seems a bit dodgy...
    Will keep looking
