    Donít know if anyone mentioned it but take note on all the socket sizes you need before you start, the axle nut that needs to be removed is a 31mm socket and that axle nut can be a huge c**t to get off.

    I have been shopping for rotors and pads as well for my 3rd gen.. I contacted crossdrilledrotors.ca and they said they have kits for 3rd gen.. Also looking into this r1concept which is US based and only ships with UPS

    the axle nut doesn't need to be removed to take off the brakes... what are you talking about?!

    I'm never ever gonna buy from them again. If you have an issue with an item you bought from them, they'll make you wait months, and will piss you off by transferring you to different "Customer Service" representatives where they'll be asking the same exact questions that the other representatives have already asked.

    Just hope that you wont have issues with what you've purchased.
