Rear dust shields had to be trimmed down to fit the rotor



Size comparison of front rotors. The Endless M4 S2 kit has smaller rotors than the equivalent pmu kits but will make fitting my 17" winter wheels much easier





Finally done. A few hiccups since I'm a total noob (bought this car to learn how to tinker) had some massive brake fluid messes and didn't have time to really test drive after install since it's late and I work early morning tomorrow. Will likely have to rebleed although I bled all 4 corners until there weren't any bubbles, but initial startup the brake pedal was REALLY mushy and required a few pumps. Will have to have a look on Friday!

Took car to shop earlier this month to get the entire underbody dry iced and honey wax seal applied before the winter since I really hated how rustcheck made everything super tarry/greasy when it came to working on the car.

Pics were taken by the shop and has some before/after

The dry ice blasting results are so satisfying.
