I dont think anyone has had issues with bias. But one thing that the drivers of my car dont like is that the brakes are very very firm like on and off switch hard to modulate with agressive pad compounds.

Does that on/off effect have anything to do with the temperature? From what I understand it gets really cold sometimes up where you live but I live in Florida. And since these discs are bigger, we can't just go get pads that fit an frs right? They have to be a different size?


For me, there is no glide in pulse and glide :p

No you have to get pads for the CP8350 AP Calipers which is very common. And then same pads for rear oem size.

@??? the kit will not mess with bias unless you inappropriately select pads and alter it yourself.
