It has been a year since I installed the 6 piston Wilwood BBK. When I bought the kit, Dave at ArizonaZCar told me to turn the rotors "after awhile". Well, I did not see why until a couple of weeks ago. The brake pedal started to give a slight shake on stops, making the braking feel like cr*p. So I took my G down to Firestone and asked to have the front rotors turned, asking for only a slight trim on the rotors. They turned the trotors, said there was tons of meat left on them. They also said the front pads look to be worn about 5%! After the trim, the car stops like it is supposed to! Still very happy with the AZC BBK.

After a year you have only used 5% (+/-)... Wow... How many miles do you drive a month? Are you are late braker or a brake rider? How much did it cost to have your rotors turned?

I'm not hard on brakes. Take what the guy said with a grain of salt, I did't see the pads myself. I have 96,000 miles on my G35 sedan. I do drive it! I have put more than 13,000 miles on her since I did the install. So It seems like the Wilwoods are lasting like I expected them to. 10,000 miles on the OEM crap would call for new pads and rotor turning as well. I had the break fluid flushed and the total bill came to $190. I think they charged $90 to turn the rotors.

Update: Approaching two years of having the Wilwoods. My brakes started squealing a few months ago. I figured it must be the rears since I had the brakes inspected recently and the fronts were reported to be 5 mm. Like a fool, I just ordered a new set of rear pads and had my local guy replace them. He gave me back the originals, Stillen metal matrix pads. They were like new! OK, so I begin to suspect the fronts need replacing. NOT! I just got a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S from Discount tire. While they had the wheels off, I examined the Willwoods. Gahhhhh, they look like new!
So the truth is, the Willwoods do squeal a bit, but they last and stop on a dime.
I would have spent at least another $1000 by now on replacement OEM pads and rotors. I do feel vindicated!

do you remember if the rotors are much lighter than stock or about the same?

Holy Crap! It has been another year without needing a brake job! I'm at 108,500 miles now and the brakes are still good. Incredible!

Cato,

It's about 2 years since you last post on this thread. How are the Wilwood rotors and pads?

Thanks

drummer: make sure you open ur brake fluid reservoir (but keep cap on so dirt doesnt get in) then push hard and steadily and they should compress slowly- be sure to hold the opposite side while doing this so it doesnt come out further.

Is the braking still as good as when the pads were new?
