    I tried to test fit my brembo calipers today ****ing no go!! So let me start off with the mount bolts much larger than our bolts spindles need to be drilled out to accept the larger bolt. They will not clear my rims so I must get rid of them. The mounting depth on the calipers is much larger I had to put a hub ring behind the rotor to allow clearance for it. The caliper itself sticks out as far as the studs do.Here's a few pics I took so u can see. I wish I took more pics but it started to rain. Oh and I could not get the caliper over the rotor without hacking up or removing the dust shield.

    Bolt size difference you can see how much longer the brembo bolt is gives you an idea on how much that rotor comes out.

    Did you ever got the set up running on your car. If so what parts are required to do the upgrade? :)
