I paid $1600 for Wheels (which I resold for $1000) and Brembos which are usually $2000+ aftermarket. So I effectively paid $600 for $2000 brakes.

Definitely a good investment, especially for resale - considering the whole "I got brembos" factor.

As far as brake power, I've driven both and there is an absolute difference especially in heat dissipation for braking endurance not to mention pure stopping power. If you're just cruising on the street, regular brakes are fine. If you intend to up the power or drive more fun (which is why I bought a Mustang) go with the Brembos.

To each their own, but just my $0.02.

I should have kept them yes, but i knew i wouldn't be using them on my Black 5.0 as i want to go with black wheels. Besides they wanted them more then the factory wheels because they knew those wheels would sell the car faster on their lot. I'm also considering the Roush black 20's for my car but they are expensive..
Those wheels are amazing, but crazy expensive. It's what, about $1500 for just the wheels, no tires? I like the hypercoated ones too.

TOO TRUE!!!!
(Now, I have only driven ONE non-Brembo car, and that was a dealer test drive) but I too can atest to the Brembos being kick-butt for superior stopping. On I-70, some stupid soccer-mom decided it would be an awesome idea to jump from the far left lane to the far right lane, in traffic at 60-70 mph.....and come w/in about a foot from hitting me. THANK YOU BREMBOS!!!! I was NOT crushed due to the Brembos (and probably the Pireli Zeros too)!

Brembos true cost = $600.
Saving your life = Priceless.

Edit: Congrats on the sub-13s 1/4 mile.
I haven't done an official 1/4 mile with mine yet, but I'm ready to go.
I got RTR 19x9.5 w/275s all around + Steeda LCA and 3rd-Link all plugged in on top of new strut/dampers and 1" lowering springs. Now its up to my skills because I have no room for equipment excuses.
