In reference to the GT2 calipers that Brembo makes for Porsche: The Porsche GT2 Caliper is a much larger caliper than what is used on the Mov-it 12.67" kits. THe GT2 is a race caliper that will only work with a 15 inch or (380mm)rotor and is an endurance caliper with a removeable bridge for thicker pads. All Brembo calipers used in genuine Brembo systems use 12mm bolts. The bolt size is misinformation and should be put to rest. Brembo-designed cross drilled rotors have larger diameter holes with specific radius that relieves stress cracking. The Porsche rotor is not a Brembo rotor nor is it a high performance material. It is an OE stock rotor material made by Zimmerman. The vent design is also superior in the Brembo rotor. The E30 and E30 M3 system retails for $1850. Please call Ryan at 310 306 3158 with further technical questions.

: What size are the bolts? The Porsche GT2 set uses 12mm to prevent caliper seperation compared to the stock 8mm. I am assuming you are talking about a 2 piece caliper. Actually, the Move'it set is probably overkill (and overprice) for street M3 use. Are the cross drilled holes cast into the rotor?

: : Attention! There is finally an bonafied Brembo big brake upgrade for E30's. System includes 13 inch drilled or slotted one piece Brembo rotor, pads, billet aluminum mounting bracket, four piston Brembo caliper, stainless braided lines and mounting hardware. This is not some pieced together kit using Porsche calipers!
