*confused* So are those just the AEM BBK with the stock brake caliper painted black w/ sticker?

Does the sticker stay on under high heat?

Nice upgrade and I thought you were doing modding the accord I know you'll enjoy the added stopping power.

Those are rice. Better give them to me so I can keep it in a safe place where no ricer can get to them .

Seriously do you sh!t money or something? I could use some here. I would've gone with better tires but what you have under the hood makes up for it and then some.

I love how some people aren't getting the fact that he didn't paint his brake calipers, but got a BBK, and they still can't tell those brakes are nowhere near stock...rofl

The problem is they dont stand out at all. At first glance even I thought sirsig painted on "brembo" with the ebay kit.

well you can tell..look at the caliper...its a block caliper with 4 pistons. You can see that in the pics.. you can also see the clearance, or lack of, by the rim. those rotors are like 13 inch right?
