Today was an absolute fun day with this big brake kit finally installed on the 7 series! Those original ‘little’ brakes on the 7 always were a pain in my eyes on those big wheels. The original brakes on the 7 are actually pretty big to be honest, they are 330mm original which is pretty big to be stock. They just look freakin’ small on those big 22″ wheels! #firstworldproblems – Those donuts and loads of Red Bulls should help us through the install as it’s not just a 5 minute wheel swap!
The original brakes from the 7 are good, they brake as they should, they don’t make any noises so for me it’s just the optical parts which made me do this swap. Kean Suspensions made these brakes custom for my car, that’s what I like!
The things you find in the Kean Suspensions fridge! And hell no I’m not drinking this and hell yes, that a small cobra snake in a bottle!
Left the original disc, on the top right a rear one, on the bottom left the new ones, bigger!
405mm and 8 pots look so good on the 7, just what it needed! The yellow calipers are a perfect fit if you ask me! I was thinking to order them in black but it would be bit too much black going on I guess. And of course with the black wheel it would have been too much I’m afraid.
On the left, the 8 pots front caliper, on the right, 6 pots on the rear axle. I made the Mperformance stickers myself – cool right? Couldn’t think of anything else to put on, I wanted to keep it classy and to the point.
I’m probably the only one who likes this picture so much! Mostly I like the behind the scenes/construction pictures more than the result! Sorry!
It’s crazy what you can do with a yellow spray can and some black marker! This was the time to kill Kenny and Andy from Kean!
Time for a little test drive and take a look at the black boat, I’m loving it! The 7 needs a few more mods for next year and season 2019 can come!
I could keep staring at the car now!
