    I think it is awesome. I am using 2005 brakes on the rear of my mom's, how did you get them on the front?

    Good job.

    Thanks, we only spend the mornings and evenings together, the rest of the time he is busy grazing.;)

    As for the improvement with the brakes versus stock. The C5 brakes will throw you out of your seat and haul the car down better than most anything else out there. It's the best.:cool:

    I am in the process of writing a C5 brake swap guide for our cars so it will explain how to do it. But the brackets come from Kore3.
