My source is me. I picked it up. It was retarded. I was willing to put something I didn't need, on my car because it looks INSANE. But not at the cost of easily trippling the weight of the brakes that were there.
I've weighed similar setups and the weight difference was negligible. I agree though on price, unless you have a competition track car or money to burn.......no need.

Are you talking about the stock brembo vs the F50 BBK? If so I already posted the weights and it's less than 1/2lb more. Double the weight would make the F50 caliper 16lbs, it's less than 9.
