Cueball,I have the front BSP brace and it's very well made and rigid,I'm pretty sure the rear brace is the same too.

Stock 1.8s, no ducting. The XP12s are totally streetable. Cold bite is excellent, mabye a touch less than my HP+s but those were street pads and these are upper-level track pads (Carbotech doesn't even recommend the XP8 for street use).

There are some downsides; they are dusty *************, they squeal like a freight train when they are semi-warm, and they throw sparks when you stop from highway speeds at night. If Emilio is right, though, and they don't eat rotors, I'll never use any other pad again.

Went ahead and ordered the braces. I looked at the old reviews on M.net and everyone really liked what they did. Some bitched about install, some didn't. We'll see. I've got the FM frame rails but not the butterfly. We'll see if this tightens up my floppy old beotch a little more.

Just tracked the XP12/XP10 combo and since I can't hype them at M.net I'll hype them here. Stock 1.8 brakes, no ducting.

******* phenomenal.

I was at California Speedway running the Roval. There are two hard braking zones; one after the infield straight where you go from about 110 to 60, and the one after turn 1 where I was going from 135 to 60. The brakes never even skipped a beat. They were dead firm every time I hammered them, without fail. They are easy to modulate, and you can just press so damn hard on them and they will keep stopping and stopping and stopping. I NEVER felt like I wanted more brakes, or firmer brakes, or anything.

Seriously, XP12/10s in 1.8 brakes obsoletes the BBK. Stops me in every situation from my first cold stop in 40 degree weather all the way up to repeated 135-60 stops, and doesn't eat rotors? What more do you want?

Always contact me directly to order. I don't use forums for transactions.

will these fit on an early 1.6 car? My triangle brace didn't fit because I don't have the old rear subframe.

I got mine. Haven't installed yet. Just two bolt positions. Heavily built and nicely finished. Simple, straight forward. Look forward to seeing if they make a detectible difference in the car.

Ok, are you familiar with the concept that some 1.6 cars didn't have some flanges on the subframe where people bolt bracing? I'm just asking because I ordered some **** where someone gave me the same answer, and I'm tired of hemorrhaging money.

When are you going to get more lugnuts? I'd like to put on my 6uls.

thanks

949 has the install instructions on the website. You can check which flanges it uses and if your car has them.

All years. Doesn't mount to the OE brace locations.
