My thoughts are the same. I can use ANY car reservoir cap, as long as I have a spare cap to modify and the plumbing and tubing bits are cheap and then forever!

I'm liking and jealous of the Wilwoods... but more jealous of the QuickJacks. They cost a fortune in Canada. Hell the Wilwoods calipers and rotors would be cheaper. Such a nice system (both WIlwoods and Quickjacks).

Thanks CW. The Quickjack has been a game changer for me. It allowed me to finally get around to some of the work under the cars I had put off for years like suspension rebuilds, OPG and transmission services.

I wanted the Brembo BBK but the cost was over $4K with slotted M3 rotors and I just couldn't justify spending the value of the car on a set. The Wilwood kit came in at $2K for everything and happy with the performance.

I hear great things about the Wildwoods.
I just "upgraded" my 4.4 to 4.8iS dual pistons front calipers. I see no real difference after all that time and some money. Oh well. I guess I can say I have fully rebuilt front calipers now, after 250k kms. So thats good. I rebuilt a rear set as well but never did fit them. I will just sell them and perhaps rebuild my current set just to say i did a refresh on all calipers at "this" kilometer point in its life.
