So i see the two boxes in the picture. One says "Made in USA" and the other says "Made in Italy". I got Brembo OEM rotors and the rears are made in USA while the fronts are made in Italy. Hmmm...weird. Nice pics BTW.

Well, i just got back from the shop, everything didn't went right, The rotors fit perfect, however after they install the front axxis brake pads it was touching my rims..my shop guys even tried putting both oem & axxis pads side by side they seems the same size however the damn axxis pads just don't wanna work. Anyways now i am running rear axxis pads while i had to put back the oem pads in the front with my new brembos...Monday my shop gonna get the spacers for the front so, in order to put the axxis pads. I am little sad..but there is nothing i can do at this point. My car.. well it making "ggshhh" sound when i stop coming from the front, i ask the tech he said the rotors is just breking up...it's normal & with the new pads it should be fine.

to break them in once you install thewm with the new pads- do about 10: 45-2mph really hard stops never come to a complete stop (safely don't kill yourself)

let them cool by driving around regularly for a while applying as little brake as possible (empty freeway is the best for this) that shoudl do it alright :)
