Pardon the messy garage, and the in-garage pics. It was snowing and crappy out, so I didn't want to back her out onto the driveway. Also, in the winter, I'm just not in the mood to clean in amidst the cold, and all the salt/mud/crud the daily driver cars bring in. I hate winter.

Overall, I love the setup I chose. Am very happy. Wish I could drive her instead of waiting 4 more months.


It makes the stock brembos look not that appealing…



Let's start with the finished product




Series of close up of rears, to show stance and fit… love it.














Now the fronts… including stance, and how they clear the brembos








Then I took a shot with the flash… I liked the dark theme…

Sounds like my work here is done

P.s. Don't get the 2015. Keep your hot 13.

I plan on handing mine down to my kid on his 16th.

The 15 isn't even on my radar, I'll be keeping the 13 until they pry the keys out of my hands. You may say your complete but it never stops LOL. I just added Koni STR.T struts and shocks with the GT500 strut mounts, BMR LCA's w/relocation brackets, UCA w/mount a few days ago, and will be doing a DSS driveshaft with BMR DS loop in the near future.

Eradispeed rotors will def. clean it up especially if you get the larger rear relocation kit.

So that's what they look like on a modded black GT/CS

I really need to get mine done. I've had them in boxes for over a year

Bro, sorry when I said "brembos not appealing" I meant the brembo rims compared to the new Milans I got.

But yes, someday, brake upgrades in the future.

Lol I got rid of the GT/CS and picked this car up, but I'm sure the look would have looked the same on that car. They did look very similar all black, low and red brakes.

And if it was t already said the Niche were 20s I would have thought they were 22s. They look huge compared to mine.

Speaking of that, I've searched in the past with no luck. Does anyone know of a 14" (or even 13") rear rotor kit that is not slotted or dimpled. I would love replacing the little 11.8" rear rotors but really don't want to have to replace the front 14" rotors (track pack car) that I have no issues with cosmetically or functionality. I wouldn't want the rears slotted or dimpled (or both) and the front not.

I thought Steeda had a kit that was not slotted and upgraded the rear with a one piece rotor. I'll see if I can find it.

Thanks yes I've seen those but because of the picture I thought they were slotted. After looking harder I believe to get the slotted version you have to use the drop down option and pay 80 something more per rotor.
Now find me a non slotted non dimpled 14" rear rotor kit LOL

Thanks,

That's what I have found also. On the Steeda 13" kit it's really deceptive, the kit description clearly says "slotted" "555-6009 - Steeda 13" Rear Brake Upgrade Kit - Slotted" and all the pictures show the slotted rotors. I'm going to email them to get the exact answer.

You're welcome.
